Tension Gauge


TIP: Make a loop. Hold the loop in shape between thethumb and index finger while crocheting the first round. After the first round, you can pull the end of the yarn as much as you´d like to tighten the loop, and avoid a big hole at the beginning.

Use a marker (some yarn) to mark the beginning of the round. We don´t close each round with a chain stitch, as we thingk it looks much more seamless to just continue crocheting.

1st round:
5 sc into the loop. Tighten.

2nd and 3rd round:
2 sc in every stitch

4th round:
*1 sc into the next stitch, 2 sc into the next stitch*
Repeat from * to *

5th round
1 sc in the back loop of every stitch

6th round- until you´re out of yarn
1 sc in every stitch
