Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
See diagrams M.1A and M.1B.

Bring the threaded needle from WS to RS in the st where the knot should be. Place the needle tip against piece and twine the loop tightly 2 times around the needle tip. Pull the needle through these loops so that there is a double knot on the thread. Insert the needle as close as possible to the st where the thread first came through (not in the exact same place, or it will pull back through) and fasten on the back - see Fig.1.

Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 74 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with off white. Insert 1 marker in the 1st st at beg of round and 1 marker in the 38th st (= side edges).
Continue to work as follows on the round: * 1 time diagram M.1A, 3 times diagram M.1B *, repeat from *-* a total of 2 times.
Continue until diagram M.1A and M.1B have been worked 1 time vertically.
Bind off with off white.
Embroider French knots with black where there is a star in the diagram.
Fold the pot holder so that the sts with markers are in the sides.

Work the entire border with off white on hook size 4 mm / G/6. Work from RS through both layers. Start at the top in the left corner and crochet around the edge of the pot holder as follows:
ROUND 1: Crochet 1 sc in the corner, then crochet 1 sc in every st around the entire edge and finish with ch 14 for strap. Fasten the strap with 1 sl st in sc in the corner at beg of round.
ROUND 2: * ch 3, 1 sc in the first of the 3 ch (= 1 picot), skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 14 sc around the strap and 1 sl st in sl st from previous round.
Fasten off.

Jeg forsøker å strikke disse grytelappene, men jeg sliter med å forstå mønsteret.Jeg får det ikke til å stemme.For det første , er det " snømenn" på begge sider av grytekluter? For det andre, skal både mønster M1A og M1B fortsette rundt det hele.For hvis jeg starter på M1A på 6 omgang blir det fire hvite masker først.Er det riktig? Gjentar jeg dette omgangen rundt ,stemmer det ikke på neste omgang. Jeg er ingen dreven strikker.😄

Hei Marit. Ja, det er snømenn på begge sider: Du strikker M.1A (=1 m) og så gjentas M.1B 3 ganger = 37 m (den ene siden av grytekluten). Så gjentar du dette mønsteret 1 gang til. Du fortsetter slik oppover, med M.1A over maskene med merker i. På 6 omgang vil du få 4 m med hvit etter hverandre akkurat i overgangen mellom A.1A og A.1B (starten og midten av omgangen). Du vil avslutte 6 omgang med 3 hvite og 1 rød m, og videre starte 7 omgang med 1 hvit, 1 rød, 1 hvit, 3 rød osv. mønsteret vil derfor «brytes» i overgangen mellom A.1A og A.1B. Husk at du skal brette arbeidet ved merkene så dette vil ikke synes like godt når det er ferdig. God fornøyelse.
