CROCHET INFO:
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next dc (= first dc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards. Work dc in back loops on sts before a stripe pattern.

MAGIC CIRCLE:
Start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten yarn end on the back and continue to work in the round in a circle.

DECREASE TIP:
Work approx. every 7th/8th dc - 6th/7th dc on round. Work 2 dc tog as follows: Insert hook in first dc and pull yarn through, insert hook in next dc and pull yarn through, make a YO and pull yarn through all sts on hook.
