MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle at beg of round, begin with a magic circle (instead of ch-ring) as follows:
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 ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 sc by working 2 sc in same sc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 sc by working 2 sc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next sc, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make 1 YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

PICOT EDGE:
Work * 1 sc in first sc, ch 3, 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook, skip approx. 1 cm / ½'' *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first sc.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first sc at beg of every sc round with 1 ch.
Finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Replace first sc at beg of every sc row with 1 ch.

ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 7-7-7-8 sc in the magic circle, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc.
ROUND 2: Inc 1 sc in every sc - READ INCREASE TIP = 14-14-14-16 sc.
ROUND 3: Work 1 sc in every sc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-6-8-8 sts evenly on round = 18-20-22-24 sc.
ROUND 4: Work 1 sc in every sc.

Switch to goldenrod and continue in the round with 1 sc in every st until piece measures 7½-8½-9-10 cm / 3"-3 1/4"-3½"-4''.

Then work sc back and forth with 20-20-22-24 sc on every row.

Work over the remaining 10-10-11-12 sc on the other side as follows:
