Materials:
L hook for chain
K hook for pattern
ww yarn, 5 oz approximately

gauge: not important

Ch 90, join in 1st ch to form a ring. Be careful not to twist chain.

ROW 1: ch 1, sc in same st as join, ch 1, (sk 1 st, sc in next st, ch 1) around, join in first sc. (45 ch-1 spaces and 45 sc)

ROW 2: turn, (sc in ch-1 space, ch 1) around. Join in first sc. (45 ch-1 spaces and 45 sc)

ROW 3 through 57: repeat row 2. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Note 1: when turning your work, do not ch 1
Note 2: it's not really necessary to count rows, just continue until piece fits the way you like it.

TIP: If you're worried about the chain twisting, replace the beginning chain and row 1 with this... ch 91, sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch 1, sk 1 st, (sc in next st, ch 1, sk next st) across, join in first sc and continue with row 2. A simple stitch when you weave in ends will close the small gap that this will leave.

VARIATION: Add 2 or 3 rounds of contrasting yarn in a fun fur type yarn or something soft and fluffy...cute, cute, cute!
