CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc row with 3 ch. The 3 ch replace first dc on row.

PICOT:
Work ch 2, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from hook.

COLOR CHANGE:
To get a nice transition between the color changes, work last sl st on round with the new color as follows: Insert hook in last ch from beg of round, get the new yarn, make a YO with the new color and pull it through st on hook.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. After 1st round, repeat A.1 4 times in total in width.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOWEL:
First work a flower square, then work back and forth on two of the sides on square. Work 1 towel in blue shades and white as explained below and 1 in only white.

SQUARE:
Work 7 ch on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with ice blue and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch - see diagram A.1.

ROUND 1: Work ch 1, * 1 sc in ch-ring, 13 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 8 times, finish with 1 sl st in first ch = 8 ch-spaces. Fasten off. Switch color to denim blue.
ROUND 2: Work 1 sl st in first ch-space, ch 6, * 1 sl st in next ch-space, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish with 1 sl st in first sl st = 8 ch-spaces. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 3: Work ch 3, * work 2 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 8 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch = 32 dc.
ROUND 4: Work ch 1, * 1 sc in first/next dc, skip 1 dc, in next ch-space work as follows: 2 dc, 2 tr, 1 PICOT – see explanation above, 2 tr, 2 dc, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 1 sl st in next ch st *, repeat from *-* 8 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in first ch = 8 leaves.Switch to white - READ COLOR CHANGE!
ROUND 5: Work ch 2, * 8 ch, 1 hdc in ch on 3rd round *, repeat from *-* 8 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 2nd ch = 8 ch-space. Spaces are folded behind the leaves on 4th round.
ROUND 6: Work ch 2, * ch 4, 1 hdc in ch-space, ch 4, 1 tr in next hdc, ch 4, 1 tr in same hdc, ch 4, 1 hdc in next ch-space, ch 4, 2 hdc in next hdc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 2nd ch.
ROUND 7: Work ch 3, * 4 dc in ch-space, skip 1 hdc, work 4 dc in next ch-space, skip 1 tr, 2 dc in next ch-space, ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space, skip 1 tr, 4 dc in next ch-space, skip 1 hdc, 4 dc in next ch-space, skip 2 hdc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch = 80 dc.
ROUND 8: Work ch 3, * 1 dc in each of the next 10 dc, 2 dc in ch-space, ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 10 dc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch = 96 dc.
ROUND 9: Switch color to ice blue. Work ch 3, ** * 1 dc in first/next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total, 1 dc in ch-space, ch 6, 1 dc in same ch-space, ch 1, * 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total **, repeat from **-** 4 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch = 56 dc.
ROUND 10: Switch color to white. Work ch 3, ** *1 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in next ch *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total, 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next ch-space (= corner), ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space,* 1 dc in next dc, 1 dc in next ch *, repeat from *-* 7 times in total **, repeat from **-** 4 times in total = 124 dc and 4 ch-space (= corners).
ROUND 11: Work ch 3, * 1 dc in each of the first 15 dc, 2 dc in ch-space (= corner), ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 16 dc *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, then work as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 15 dc, 2 dc in ch-space (= corner), 11 ch (= corner with strap for hanging), 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 16 dc = 140 dc and 4 ch-space (= corners). Fasten off.

Then work back and forth, beg from 1st corner on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with white as follows:

ROW 1:– READ CROCHET INFO, 1 dc in first dc (i.e. beg in first dc after ch-space – see star in diagram), skip 2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 2 dc, * 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* until 1 dc remains before first corner (= 16 dc in total), 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in ch-space, ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in next dc * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* until 6 dc remain before next corner, * ch 1, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total = 38 dc in total on row.

ROW 2: Work 1 dc in first dc, * work 1 dc in next ch, but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work 1 dc in next dc, but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook *, repeat from *-* 1 more time (= 2 dc dec), work 1 dc in every dc and in every ch until next corner, work 2 dc in ch-space, ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in every dc and in every ch until 3 dc and 2 ch remain, * work 1 dc in next dc, but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work 1 dc in next ch, but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook *, repeat from *-* 1 more time (= 2 dc dec), finish with 1 dc in last dc = 70 dc and 1 ch-space.

ROW 3-4: Work 1 dc in first dc, then work the next 2 dc tog – READ DECREASE TIP, repeat dec 1 more time, work 1 dc in every dc until next corner, work 2 dc in ch-space, ch 4, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in every dc until 5 dc remain before next corner, work the next 2 dc tog, repeat dec 1 more time, 1 dc in last dc = 70 dc and 1 ch-space.

Repeat row 1-4 4 times in total, piece measures approx. 50 cm / 19 3/4'' measures from tip to tip on the longest part. Fasten off.

CROCHET EDGE:
Work an edge around the towel on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with white as follows: 1 sc, * ch 3, skip approx. 1 cm / 3/8'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* around the entire towel, work 11 sc around the strap, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc on round. Fasten off.
