Round 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook; DO NOT JOIN but work in continuous rounds. Mark end of round. Move marker up each round.
Round 2: [Inc] 6 times – 12 sc.
Round 3: [Inc, sc in next sc] 6 times – 18 sc.

Round 6: [Inc, sc in next 4 sc] 6 times – 36.
Round 7: [Inc, sc in next 5 sc] 6 times – 42.
Rounds 8-20: Sc in each sc around. At the end of Round 20, join with a slip st in next sc.
Round 21: Ch 4 (counts as a dc and ch-1), skip next sc, * dc in next sc, ch 1, skip next sc; repeat from * around; join with a slip st in 3rd ch of ch-3.
Round 22: Ch 1, 2 sc in each ch-1 space around; join with a slip st in first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Make 1 or 2 twisted cords starting with a 3-yard length of yarn for each. Bring the cut ends together and tie a knot close to the ends forming a large loop. Secure the knotted end to a stable surface or have a friend hold the end. Slip a pencil into the loop and hold the yarn just below the loop and the pencil. Holding the yarn taut, twirl the pencil, thereby twisting the yarn, until the entire length is tightly twisted and begins to twist back upon itself. Bring the loop end and the knotted end together. Tie with an overhand knot. Trim the ends. Smooth out the kinks so that the cord lies flat and is evenly twisted along its length.
Weave each cord through the ch-1 spaces of Round 21 (in opposite directions if using 2). Knot ends of cord together;
trim ends.
ABBREVIATIONS: ch = chain; dc = double crochet; mm = millimeters; sc = single crochet; st(s) = stitch(es); * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated; [ ] = work directions in brackets the number of times specified.
