Abbreviations 

US Terminology

ch = chain

st = stitch

sk = skip

sl st = slip stitch

dc = double crochet

tc = treble crochet

fsc = foundation single crochet

Notes

Ch 3 counts as a dc.

Do not turn after each row. 

You may want to use a stitch marker to keep track of the start of each round.

Parentheses indicate multiple stitches worked into a single stitch. These are used to make the corners. 

Corners in subsequent rounds will always be worked into the treble crochets from the previous rounds, so keep that in mind.

Star (Make 2)

Magic Circle

Round 1: ch 3, dc 9 in circle.

Round 2: do not ch, sk the first st, (dc 3, tc, dc 3) in the next st, *sk 1, (dc 3, tc, dc 3) in the next st, repeat from * 3 more times, sl st to the top of the ch 3.
