Today I started the process of trying to duplicate the antique gem I found online.I started out by choosing thread and needle. Then made 10 stitches and closed the circle with a slip stitch.
In the circle I stitched 18 single crochet and closed with a slip stitch to complete my first row.
Then for the second row I did a variation of the double crochet.
In each single crochet from row #1 you will stitch a double crochet and separate each one with one chain, and close with a slip stitch
