Beg every sc row with 1 ch (replaces first sc).
Beg every dc row with 3 ch (replaces first dc).
Beg every tr row with 4 ch (replaces first tr).

Worked from the middle and outwards.
Work 181-205 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Nepal. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in next ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 3 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 135-153 dc. Work 1 sc in every dc (= WS) – read CROCHET INFO = 135-153 sc. * Then work as follows: A.4 over the first 4 sc, A.1 over the next 4 sc, A.2 over the next 114-132 sc (= 19-22 times in width), A.3 over the next 9 sc, finish with A.5 over the last 4 sc. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.y over A.z 1-2 times in total. Then work A.x over A.y. When A.x has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.w over A.x 1-2 times in total *, repeat from *-* 1 more time vertically AT THE SAME TIME on last row in A.w inc 2-0 dc evenly (NOTE do not inc over A.4-A.5) = 137-153 dc. Then work as follows: A.6 over A.4, A.7 over the next 128-144 dc (= 8-9 times in width), A.8 over the next dc, finish with A.9 over A.5. Work A.6-A.9 1 time vertically. Fasten off. Then work from ch-row at beg of piece again the same way in opposite direction, i.e. work from WS 1 sc in every dc = 135-153 sc. Then work pattern the same way. Fasten off. Piece measures approx. 126-146 cm / 49½"-57½" in total.
