Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. 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.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): 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 at the back. 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 from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in next dc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next dc, 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 dc, get thread, make a YO with the new colour and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round with the new colour.

"7. RUNDE: in der 1. fM eine fM aufnehmen, danach 1 fM in jede fM = 36 fM. 8. und 9. RUNDE: 1 fM in jede fM 10. RUNDE: * 1 fM in die nächsten 3 fM, 2 fM in die nächste fM *, von *-* wdh = 30 fM" Kann es sein, dass bei Runde 10 nicht nochmal Maschen verdoppelt werden müssen sondern eigentlich abgenommen werden? Sonst kommt man ja nicht von 36 auf 30 Maschen... Viele Grüße, Judith Wiese
