I used worst weight yarn and a size K afghan hook.
sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc across. 18 sc, turn.
Row 1, The Afghan Stitch:
Insert hook in second sc and draw up a loop. repeat for remaining sc's. 18 loops
YO and remove one loop, * YO and remove two loops* repeat until one loop remains.
Row 2, Single Crochet:
