Worked back and forth on needle in a circle with short rows and sewn tog when finished. The whole pot holder is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 22 sts with white Paris on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4.
Start by working 1 repetition with short rows as follows: * Work with white and work over all sts (from and with 2nd repetition work 2 rows with white) - do not cut the yarn, use this on next repetition. Switch color and then work with strong yellow for the lemon or orange for the orange as follows: Slip 2 sts, work over the next 20 sts, turn piece and work back and forth over the 20 sts, work over the first 18 sts, turn piece and work back, work over the first 16 sts, turn piece and work back - continue like this until 2 sts remain, work over the first 2 sts, turn and work back. Then work over 20 sts - do not cut the yarn (use this on next repetition). Slip the 2 white sts back on needle *. Repeat from *-* until 12 repetitions have been worked in total.
Switch color to white, then work a strap from last st on needle as follows: * 1 YO, pass st over YO *, repeat from *-* until strap measures 6 cm / 2½''. On next row bind off all sts with K.

Tighten tog the middle and fasten the yarn tightly. Sew tog the cast-on and bind-off edge with white.

Je ne comprends pas cette phrase. Commencer par 1 série de rangs raccourcis ainsi: *en blanc, tricoter toutes les mailles (à partir de la 2ème série comprise, tricoter 2 rangs en blanc) - ne pas couper le fil, on le reprendra à la série suivante.

Bonjour Olga, la première fois que vous tricotez les rangs raccourcis, vous tricotez 1 seul rang en blanc sur toutes les mailles, ne coupez pas le fil blanc, vous le reprendrez plus tard pour la série de rangs raccourcis suivante. tricotez ensuite en jaune/orange comme indiqué jusqu'à la fin de la série, puis recommencez les rangs raccourcis en commençant cette fois par 2 rangs en blanc. Bon tricot!

Ohjeessa virhe. Mallikerta alkaa mielestäni näin *neulo kaikki s:t valkoisella.... Vaihda väriä.. Nosta 2s neulomatta, neulo seuraavat 20 (tästä alkaa korjaus) neulo ensimmäiset 18, käännä työ ja neulo takaisin, loppu ohje oikein
