Completed size depends on hoops used and number of rounds completed.
Gauge is not important with this pattern.
Rnd 1: Make a loop around the hoop and sc around to cover the hoop. Crocheting over the loose end for several stitches will eliminate sewing it in later. You can cover the hoop completely, or to your taste.
Rnd 2:. Turn, (do not ch 1) sk first ch, * sc in next ch, sk two ch, sc in next ch, repeat from *. You should do these sc's a little loose to reach the next st.
Rnd 3: Turn, sk first st, * sc in next st, sk 1 st, repeat from * around.
Rnd 4: Turn, sk first st, * sl st in next st, sk next st, repeat around.
At this point, you can fasten off and sew in the loose end, or add another round. The white hoops above were done with 3 rounds and the black hoops were done with 4 rounds. The more rounds you add, the lacier the look becomes.
