BACK PIECE:
Ch 56-65-75 with Muskat on hook size 4 mm / G/6. Turn and work as follows: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 sc in each of the next 5-7-3 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 sc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 49-57-65 sc (first ch on row = 1 sc).
Continue with pattern according to diagram A.1 – beg with row marked with 1 arrow as follows: a over the first 4 sts, b until 5 sts remain, then c.
There are now 6-7-8 repetitions of pattern.
Repeat the next 4 rows in diagram until piece measures approx. 14-16-18 cm / 5½"-6 1/4"-7". REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
