----------------------------------------------------------

MEASURING TIP:
Pattern is for a wine box with a circumference of 52 cm. If the wine box has other measurements, add/subtract 3 sts for every 2 cm the wine box is larger/smaller than 52 cm in circumference.
Measure the shorter side of wine box and multiply measurement in cm with 1.6. Divide no of sts by 2 and beg with that no of sts before marker.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc row with 1 ch.

MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole 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 yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work 1 ch, then work 5 dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop.
----------------------------------------------------------

GINGER BREAD MAN COVER:
Worked back and forth. Work 84 ch on hook size 4.5 mm with brown - READ MEASURING TIP. Work 1 ch - READ CROCHET INFO, 1 dc in every ch (= 84 dc).
Work 2 more rows with 1 dc in every dc (last row is from RS). Then work as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 74 dc until piece measures 6 cm, adjust so that next row is from WS.

Work 1 dc in each of the first 74 dc, work 10 ch AT THE SAME TIME insert 1 marker between 5th and 6th ch. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!

Then work 1 dc in every st (= 84 dc). Continue with 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 14 cm. Switch to off white. Work 1 row as follows: * 1 dc, 1 ch, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 dc in last dc on row. Switch to brown and work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc in every ch on row. Work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 21 cm. NOTE: Adjust height according to wine box. Switch to off white. Work 1 row as follows: * 1 dc, 1 ch, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 dc in last dc on row. Fasten off.

TOP:
Then work the top of the box back and forth on hook size 4.5 mm with brown. Beg 9 sts before marker and work 1 dc in each of the next 18 sts. Turn and work 1 dc in each of the 18 dc. Continue like this until piece measures 15 cm (NOTE: Adjust height according to wine box). Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:

Ich wollte gerade schreiben dass dies die ideale kalorienfreie Alternative zum Lebkuchenhaus ist.... und dann sah ich, dass es als Deko für einen Weinkarton gedacht ist. Also wir streichen das 'kalorienfrei'. Und die Kinder dürfen nur gucken (-: Witig finde ich's trotzdem. (-:
