  • 180m Pink yarn
  • 2.5mm Hook
  • Plush Yarn
  • 5cm Paper clip


Step 1

Take a paper clip and use the hook to pull the pink yarn under it to make the first loop. Repeat the same process until you have a total of 10 loops in a single column. Raise the hook and insert it into the back half-loop of the first column to pivot and start another set of columns. Continue looping and turning around until it is wide enough and slowly enclosing at the top.

Step 2

In the final third full row, knit only 16 loops in total so that it appears smaller than the base. Pull out a larger loop and cut the thread, close the edge by inserting the hook under a loop and pulling the tail of the thread through it. Use a plush yarn and insert the hook under both arches, pull the plush yarn, and make an air loop until you have single crochet. Do this all the way around and knot the ends of the thread.
