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 3 ch, then work 11 tr around the loop. Pull the yarn end to tighten loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side.

Replace first tr at beg of every tr round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

See diagram A.1.

Then work stripes as follows:
* 4 rounds Christmas red, 1 round off white *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total vertically. Finish with one round Christmas red.

First work with Christmas red before continuing with stripes and zig-zag pattern.

Work a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above, with 12 tr on hook size 7 mm with Christmas red. Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 2 tr in every tr – READ CROCHET TIP! = 24 tr on round. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 2: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 tr on round.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 tr on round.
On next round work STRIPES, AT THE SAME TIME work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 - see explanation above. Repeat A.1 4 times in total on round. When A.1. has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat 3rd row in A.1 (i.e. inc 4 tr in every repetition on round). Continue until stripes have been worked and piece measures approx. 95 cm in diameter (from edge of tips). Fasten off.
