TIPS:
The carpet can be crochet to desired measure. We made a smaller carpet that measures approx 83 cm/ 32 3/4" in diameter and one a bit larger that measures approx 125 cm/ 49" in diameter. For the small carpet you need 700 g Paris as explained above, and for the larger one you need approx 1300 g Paris.

PATTERN A.1 (divisible by 4 sts):
Pattern consists of 4 rounds and diagram A.1 shows 5th and 6th round in pattern. Work as follows:
ROUND 5: ch 4 (= 1 dc + 1 ch), skip 1 dc, in next dc work 1 dc + ch 7 + 1 dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, then work pattern according to A.1 as follows: * ch 1, skip 1 dc, in next dc work 1 dc + ch 7 + 1 dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc **, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* but finish last repetition after **, then work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 6: Work according to diagram A.1 as follows: * Work 7 dc in next ch-space, work 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 12 dc-groups.
ROUND 7: Work 1 sl st in each of the next 2 dc, ch 1, 1 sc in 4th dc in dc-group, * ch 7, 1 sc in 4th dc on next dc-group *, repeat from *-* 11 times in total, finish with ch 7 and 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 12 ch-spaces and 96 sts in total on round.
ROUND 8: ch 3 (= 1 dc), * ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with ch 1 and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 48 dc and 1 ch between every dc (= 96 sts in total on round).

PATTERN A.2 (divisible by 6 sts):
Pattern consists of 4 rounds and diagram A.2 shows 14th and 15th round in pattern. Work as follows:
ROUND 14: ch 4 (= 1 dc + 1 ch), skip 2 dc, in next dc work 1 dc + ch 7 + 1 dc, ch 1, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in next dc, then work pattern according to A.2 as follows: * ch 1, skip 2 dc, in next dc work 1 dc + ch 7 + 1 dc, ch 1, skip 2 dc **, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* but finish last repetition after **, then work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 15: Work according to diagram A.2 as follows: * Work 7 dc in next ch-space, work 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 26 dc-groups.
