0:31join with the beginning chain
0:32putting your hook right through the first chain

1:30stitch around
1:32we will be working in the continual round
1:34and that is by putting your hook
1:35right below the two loops at the top of the stitch
1:39working the first single crochet
1:42we will work a second single crochet in the same stitch
1:46and this is the increase

3:49at this point you may want to attach a scrap piece of yarn
3:55and this is the yarn marker

5:25and this is where i worked the increase
5:28and if you don't get it to line up perfect
5:30or the number of stitches are not perfect
5:32don't worry about it
5:34you can go on ahead and work an extra increase
5:36the project is still going to work
5:38even if your stitch count is off a little bit
5:42round 5 will be an individual stitch in three stitches

8:50now i'm back around to the beginning
8:52you can see there are slight points
8:54this is what happens when you don't stagger the stitches
8:57and sometimes i will stagger a little bit off
9:01it is not going to matter
9:02because once we contine on
9:04you won't notice the points
