Row 1. In the 3rd chain from your hook make a sc (the turning chain counts as your first sc). Sc in each chain – 30 stitches
Row 2. Chain 1 and slip stitch into the first stitch *make a berry stitch in the next stitch (yarn over and insert hook into the loop. Yarn over and pull up a loop then yarn over and pull your hook through the first loop on your hook – you should now have 3 loops in your hook. Yarn over and in the same stitch insert your hook and yarn over and pull up a loop then yarn over and pull through the first loop on your hook – you should now have 5 loops on your hook.
Finally yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on your hook then chain 1).
Then slip stitch* repeat between *and* across the row ending with a slip stitch in the last 2 stitches – 30 stitches
Tip – keep your slip stitches loose as you’ll be crocheting into them later
