  1. Hi!

    I’m having a bit of trouble with this pattern. What do you mean by crocheting in the round? It seems to me like you should chain 1 at the end of the round then go back crocheting to the other end. How do you get to round 2 if you don’t chain? Also, do you make two of these and use the slip stitch around to crochet them together?

    • In the round means to continuously work around like when you make a hat. You work in the round then sl st through both sides at the end instead of making 2 separate pieces then sl stitching them together. It is worked up in once piece. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
