There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show colours on egg. 1 square in diagram = 1 dc with 2 strands.

DOUBLE YARN TIP:
Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg round with 1 ch (ch does not replace first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.

COLOUR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colour work as follows: Work last st with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour and work last pull through, then work next st. When working with two colour place strand for the colour not worked over sts from previous round, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows in the round.

REVERSE CROCHET:
Work as dc but backwards. I.e. work dc from left to right. Beg round with reverse crochet with 1 ch (ch does not replace first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in first ch.
