General notes
Please read these instructions before working the pattern.

The beginning of each part
There are two options (I always use the second option. There are no holes at the beginning if you use the loop):
1)Start with chain 2 and work every first round into the first stitch made.
2)Start with a magic ring (adjustable loop) and work number of stitches in the first round into the loop.

Changing rounds
Do not replace crochet stiches by chain stiches at the beginning of each row. Instead make endless spiral. Crochet a first stitch of the row in first stitch of previous round. Use a stitch marker to remember of the beginning of the round. How to mark beginning of a row is demonstrated on pictures below

Crocheting in back/front loops only
Unless noted otherwise always work the rounds/rows through both loops. Sometimes we need to crochet different structures and we crochet some rows in back/fron loops only. The pictures below show how to crochet through the back loops (left) or front loops (right) only.

Loose ends
At the beginning and the end of a piece leave a tail of at least 15 cm or even longer, because most of these can be used for sewing. Loose ends you do not use anymore can be pulled through some stitches on the inside of the piece and cut off.
