I have done this tutorial with different colored yarns in the sequence to make the stitches. I will be referring to each color in the pictures. I have tried to do this taking less pictures. So if you do not understand, please ask. In all pictures I will be referring to, will go from top to bottom.
The pattern for this may be found at http://members.aol.com/crochetalong/yoyoghans.html
Chain 4, join with a slip stitch to the first chain to form a ring.
Top Yellow - Make a slip knot and chain 4
The black mark is where you will insert your hook to make your slip stitch to close the ring.
To do a slip stitch (sl st) Insert hook where indicated in the pattern. Yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.
Middle Purple - Slip stitch is completed, a ring is formed.
Round 1: Chain 3 to count as the first double crochet (dc),
Bottom White - Chain 3 (this will always count as your first double crochet) The black mark shows you where you will insert your hook into the center of the ring to make your second double crochet.
