Sand Dollar

I am a Floridian born and raised. Sometimes it is easy to to take all the beauty here for granted. For instance, collecting shells and sand dollars on the snowy white sand while the sea gulls fly overhead and the wind rustles the sea oats. Florida beaches are magical.
Why not make a sand dollar to have a little bit of Florida magic?

What you need:

Cream or lavender worsted weight yarn
Size F (3.75mm) hook
Yarn Needle

Top and Bottom

work in continuous rounds

  • Chain 2
  • Round 1: work 8 sc in first chain
  • Round 2: work 2 sc in each sc around - 16 st
  • Round 3: *2 sc in next st, sc in next st, rep from * around - 24 st
