Note:

Do not join an do not turn at the end of each round, rounds are worked in continuous spirals.

How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round. Move the marker up each time you start a new round.
