Hook Size 5,5 mm (US I/9, UK 5)

Length: 50 cm / 19.5 in

Terminology:
st = stitch
sts = stitches
sl.st = slip stitch

DC = double crochet (yarn over the hook once)
FPTC = front post treble crochet (yarn over the hook twice)

Instructions:

FRONT = BACK

To begin make 56 chains for size M or any multiple of 4
If you want a different size you can make more or fewer chains.

Row 1: skip CH and make SC one in the second chain and make another SC in an already-made SC (from one thread). It’s a first stitch. DC one in every chain across.

Row 2: CH one and turn; make SC one in every stitch across.

Row 3: turn and make SC in the first st, and make another SC in an already-made SC (from one thread). It’s a first stitch.
Make FPTC in the next stitch just one row down, skip st, DC in the next st, *FPTC in the next stitch just one row down, skip st, DC in the next st *repeat to the end of the row

Row 4: CH one and turn, make SC one in every stitch across.
