CROCHET INFO:
Replace first sc on round with 1 ch. Finish with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Replace first dc on a dc round with 3 ch. Finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

REVERS CROCHET:
Work as sc but backwards. I.e. crochet around from left to right

ROUNDS WITH DC AND CH:
Work every round with dc and ch as follows: Turn piece so that WS is towards you, work 4 ch (= 1st dc + 1st ch), skip 1st ch-space (= last ch from previous round), * 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 1 *. Repeat from *-*, finish round with 1 dc in last ch-space (= ch-space with 4 ch from previous round), 1 sl st in ch-space with 4 ch from beg of round - i.e. work alternately from RS and WS to get a nice finish/beg on round.
----------------------------------------------------------


BERET:
The piece is worked top down.
ROUND 1: Ch 4 on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Karisma and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch, work 8 sc in ch-ring - READ CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc the entire round = 16 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 24 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 32 sc.
Then work according to A.1 (= 4 repetitions on round).
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 32 ch-spaces on round.
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 4 dc in every ch-space = 128 dc.
ROUND 2: Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 dc evenly = 126 dc.
ROUND 3: Work 1 dc in every dc but work every 13th and 14th dc tog = 117 dc.
ROUND 4: Work 1 dc in every dc but work every 12th and 13th dc tog = 108 dc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 dc in every dc but work every 11th and 12th dc tog = 99 dc.
ROUND 6: Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME dec 11 dc evenly = 88 dc.
ROUND 7-10: Work 1 dc in every dc the entire round.
ROUND 11: Work with a double thread. Work a round with REVERSE CROCHET - see explanation above.
---------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
Work in the round with Karisma on hook size 4 mm / G/6, work 1 loose ch-row with 228 ch, finish with 1 sl st in 1st ch. Ch 4 (= 1st dc + 1st ch), * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in ch-space with 4 ch from beg of round = 114 dc + ch. Then work ROUNDS WITH dc AND CH – see explanation above. Continue like this until piece measures 18 cm / 7’’ vertically.
Then work a fan edge as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 ch in 1st sc, 1 sc in every dc and 1 sc in every ch the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch = 228 sc.
ROUND 2: Work 1 ch in 1st sc, * skip 2 sc, 6 dc in next sc, skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch = 38 fans. Work the same way in the other side. Fasten off.
