Note: First three rounds are worked in a spiral. There is no joining. Ordinarily, when working in a spiral, you would use a stitch marker or small piece of yarn to mark the start or end of the round in order to keep your place on the round.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
