Yamulka crochet reminder

Very basic crochet instructions I've found for yamulka .

Yamulka

1 ball #10 size 10 crochet cotton. & size 7 hook.

Start with a little thread circle & crochet 8 sc into it: then pull the thread to close the circle tightly. Mark the first stitch, then work on continuous rounds.

  • rnd1: 2sc in ea sc around. 16sc
  • rnd2; sc in ea sc around
  • rnd3: 2sc in ea sc around
  • rnd4:sc in ea sc around
  • rnd5:*sc in next 2sc, 2sc in next sc* around
  • rnd6: sc in ea sc around
  • rnd7:*sc in next 3 sc, 2sc in next sc* around
  • rnd8: sc in ea sc around
Continue till it's the desired size. All even numbered rounds are simply "sc in ea sc around" Odd numbered rounds are increases. with ea reound the number of stitches between ea increase grows by one. End by working sl st into next 2sc & then ending off.
