Mirror Mirror Bottom:
Spiral Round 1 (set-up spiral) is incorrect. It should read:
Rnd 1 (Set up Spiral):
(Sc, hdc) in 2nd ch from hook (elongate working loop so that it will not accidentally ravel as you set up rem spokes of spiral), * remove lp from hook, insert hook in same ch , yo with A and draw up loop, ch 1, (sc, hdc) in same ch* with a separate ball of MC repeat from * to * once, with B repeat from * to * once, do not join- 8 sts. Do not elongate loop or remove hook from loop, Work in a spiral marking beg of rnd and moving marker up as work progresses.
Schematic for Rnds 1-5 of bottom Spiral:
The colors are incorrect in the schematic. The first color in round 1 that we use should be black (MC) – in the schematic it looks like we started with blue (color A). The second color we use should be blue (color A)- in the schematic it looks like black. The third color should be Black (the second ball of MC) –not red as in the schematic. The last color of round 1 should be Red (color B)- not black as in the schematic.

Even the loveliest of ladies can use a little affirmation from time to time. You used to have to ask the mirror affixed to the wall your questions, but through modern technology you can now take a smaller mirror with you on the go. Soon you’ll be saying, “Mirror, mirror on the go, who’s the hottest? Oh, me? I know!”
