  1. Hi there, for the body on rounds 2-12, are we slip stitching to join the rounds and then chaining one and beginning the HDC 3rd loop only, or are we only slip stitching to join and immediately going into HDC without the ch1? Thanks!

    1. HI Kristen,
      There’s an instruction to place a stitch marker at the end of round 1 and move this after each round. With this, you do not need to chain 1 at the beginning of the round and also you do not need to join at the end of the round.
      Simple remove the stitch marker when you get to the end of the round and place it on the first stitch in the next round. Continue this repeat until you have the required number of rounds.
