About 50g of acrylic yarn of a double knitting weight - or any yarn that recommends 4mm knitting needles or equivalent
Allow more yarn if you are using wool, cotton or a wool or cotton blend
ch = chain
tr = treble crochet (US double crochet)
tc = turning chain
Make 21 ch
ROW 1 Work 1tr into 4th chain from hook. Work 1tr into each remaining ch to end 3ch turn (19 stitches)

ROW 2 Miss 1tr, work 1tr into each remaining tr of previous row to end, 3ch, turn
repeat ROW 2 until your work measures about 25 inches
Do not work the tc at the end of the last row.
Finish by breaking the yarn (leave a few inches). Thread this yarn through the last stitch and pull to tighten.
using a large blunt needle darn in the loose ends of yarn
