NOTE: Beg by reading from POT HOLDERS further down in pattern.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 (1st-5th round) and A.2 (6th-13th round). Diagrams show entire 1st and 2nd round, diagrams show 1 of 3 repetitions.

TTR:
Make 4 YOs on hook, move hook under st to be worked around, pull through first st, make YO around hook again, and pull through the first 2 sts, * make YO around hook again, and pull through the next 2 sts *, repeat from *-* 3 more times.

BOBBLE:
Work 1 sc in next st, work 2 tr tog into 1 tr as follows: 1 tr in same st but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 tr in same st but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook = 1 sc and 1 tr.

CROCHET 2 TR TOG:
2 tr tog into 1 tr as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 tr in next st but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook.

TIP:
Work 2 ttr and 1 sc into 1 st as follows: Work 1 ttr around same ttr as previous ttr was worked around but wait with last pull through, work 1 ttr around next ttr from 7th round but wait with last pull through, work 1 sc in next dc on round, now pull last YO through all 4 sts on hook.

STRIPE COLORS:
ROUND 1: Mustard
ROUND 2: Shocking pink
ROUND 3: Heather
ROUND 4: Dark purple
ROUND 5: Dark turquoise

ROUND 6: Light turquoise
ROUND 7: Mustard

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc round with 3 ch (these ch are not counted in no of dc), finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Beg every sc round with 1 ch (this ch is not counted in no of sc), finish with 1 sl st in first sc at beg of round.


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 1st/3rd ch from beg of round, get the new yarn, make a YO with the new color and pull it through st on hook (cut the yarn from previous row and pull it through st).

STRAP:
1 ch, * 1 sc in front part of 1st sc from hook, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until strap measures 6 cm / 2 3/8''.

LINES AND DOT (applies if only working according to diagram):
At every dot in diagram work around the st the line leads to.
ROUND 7: Work TTR - see explanation above - around sc at start from 4th round.
ROUND 9: Work ttr around ttr from 7th round.
ROUND 11: Work 1 dtr around ttr from 9th round.
ROUND 13: Work 1 tr around each of the 2 dtr from 11th round - READ CROCHET 2 TR TOG above.

LINES AND CIRCLE (applies if only working according to diagram):
At every circle in diagram work around the st the line leads to.
Circle on 9th ROUND: 2 ttr (1 around each st with dot from 7th round), and work 1 sc into 1 st as follows: Work 1 ttr around st with dot but wait with last pull through, work 1 ttr around next st with dot but wait with last pull through, work 1 sc in next dc on round, now pull last YO through all 4 sts on hook.

POT HOLDERS:
Work 2 pot holders that consist of 2 pot holders each which are assemble tog.
