CROCHET INFO:
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next dc (= first dc on next round). NOTE: Insert a marker between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards.

WORKING 2 DC TOG:
* Insert hook in next st, get thread *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.

COLOUR CHANGE:
To get a nice colour change work last dc on round as follows: Insert hook in last st, get thread, make a YO with the new colour and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round.

Jeg har så svært ved at forstå opskriften på armene som "vend arb og hækl tilbage således: 1.OMG: Hækl 1 fm i hver lm fra 2.lm fra nålen = 4 fm. Fortsæt at hækle 3 fm på den anden side af lm-rækken = 7 fm totalt." Jeg ved ikke, hvad jeg skal gøre. Kan I forklare, hvad I mener med "Vend arb og hækl tilbage" efter man har lavet 5 lm (4 lm + 1 lm til at vende med)?

Hej, du hækler på begge sider af den lille luftmaskerække, altså først den ene vej, så den anden vej i samme luftmaskerække. Nu kan du hækle rundt (ovalt) i alle masker. God fornøjelse!

Do you ship to the United States? And I think the little pink and red cat should be called "Lucky Cat" with the waving paw and red color (s)he is very good luck.

Det var en feil i den svenske oppskriften. Det er nå rettet på.

Kropp: VARV 3: *1 fm i nästa fm, 2 fm i nästa fm*. Upprepa *-* v runt = 24 fm. VARV 4: *1 fm i de nästföljande 12 fm, 2 fm i nästa fm*. Upprepa *-* v runt = 32 fm. Det är väl ganska omöjligt att få 32 fm där? Man kan bara göra den kombinationen 1 gång för sen har man bara 11 fm kvar från föregående varv kvar, och då har man bara plussat på 1 fm. Hjärnbry, snälla förklara! MVH Emmy
