Good morning Artisans!! It is so nice to embark on this Crochet Along aka Road Trip.
I decided to call it Compact Doily because it won’t be lacy, it is going to be “solid-looking”.
So, take out your hook and thread and wrap around your thread about six times, this is just an example, I did mine about six or seven times but I did not photograph it, silly me.
This is what we call a magic ring and next, you want to do 40 single crochet into the ring, close with a slip stitch.
Next row: you want to chain 2 and slip stitch into each single crochet (work in the back loop) from the previous row. This row won’t lay perfectly flat because it has extra stitches, if it is tight you know you are doing something wrong.
Make certain you yarn over 5 times, so chain 3 and make your first puff with only 4 yarn overs and place in the first space (the 2 chains form a tiny space, this is where you want to work) you close your puff with one slip stitch and add 2 chains to separate each puff. You want to work in every other space, at the end of this row you must have 20 or 21 puffs, it doesn’t have to be precise.
