Replace first dc at beg of every round with 1 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

See chart A.1 – 1 row in chart = 1 round dc.

If the crochet gauge is not correct in height you can adjust by adding or deduct 1 round of the stripes.

To get the prettiest colour change work last dc on round like this: put hook through last stitch, get the thread, make a yo with the new colour and pull through all sts on hook. Continue next round with the new colour.

Work in 2 parts, fill it and work the 2 parts tog.

With hot pink crochet 4 ch on hook size 8 mm with 2 threads and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Then work dc in the round at the same time work stripes - see explanation above!
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 12 dc.
ROUND 3: * Work 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 dc.
ROUND 4: * Work 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc.
Continue inc like this (i.e. on every round, work 1 dc more between every time 2 dc are worked in same st) until row marked with arrow in chart has been worked (i.e. last round is a round with pink). There are now 114 dc on round and piece measure approx 50 cm in diameter.
Continue working 1 dc in each dc (stripes continues as before), until A.1 is finished (i.e. last round is a round with pink). Cut the thread.

Beg as on first part and work the same way until row with arrow in chart is worked and there are 114 dc on round (i.e. last round is a round with pink).

Fill the pouf as follows: Place the 2 duvets tog as one thick duvet and pull a jersey sheet over one side of the duvet. Push the duvet in to the largest part of pouf (make sure that the jersey sheet is at the edge). Place the second part of pouf on the top and work tog with 2 threads pink as follows: 1 sl st in first dc on one part, 1 sl st in first dc on the other part, * 1 sl st in next dc on the first part, 1 sl st in next dc on the other part *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first sl st from beg of round. Cut and fasten the threads.
