    Perfect project for re-starting crocheting… I used to play with it when I was a young girl and, as soon as I’ll have 48 hrs a day, I’ll start again with this project… pinned!

    Hi,
    I’m pretty new to crocheting, so I was wondering. what does that ‘v’ mean, in the round 6 through 9: “R6-9: 30v” ?

    Hi Evi! Ah I’m sorry, that is a typo. It should be 30sc. I translated it from my Dutch pattern where a single crochet is a ‘vaste’..
