What is end off?
MGM, do you increase into every stitch in the round, or just into the first stitch of the round?
"End off" just means to finish. Cut your yarn leaving a generous tail, draw the yarn through the loop on the hook and pull it up tight.
Depending on which round you are working on, you might increase into every stitch, or you might work individual stitches a number of times before increasing in the next stitch, and then more individual stitches and then two in the same stitch to increase, and continue this around.
My hat pattern is probably a better example, since it is a hat! You can find it by clicking HERE
"Continue without increasing" means just that...crochet once into each stitch so that each subsequent round has the same number of stitches.
Hope this helps! Holler if you need more!
