See diagram A.1. Work diagram in dc, i.e. 1 square in diagram = 1 dc with 2 strands.

COLOR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colour work as follows: Work last tr with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next tr. When working with two color place strands for the color not worked over sts from previous round, work around the strands so that they are hidden and follows in the round.

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

Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

Work as sc but backwards. I.e. work sc from left to right.

Work 4 ch on hook SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 with 2 strands dark gray and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch - READ DOUBLE YARN TIP.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 6 sc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 12 sc.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 sc in first/next sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 4: Work * 2 sc in first/next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 sc.
ROUND 5: Work * 2 sc in first/next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sc.
ROUND 6: Work * 2 sc in first/next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 sc.
Continue to work like this until 12 rounds have been worked = 72 sc on last round.
Work next round as follows: Work * 2 sc in first/next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 8 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 80 sc. Piece measures approx. 20 cm / 8'' in diameter. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work the edge.

Worked in pattern with 2 colors at a time.
Work edge as follows: Remember CROCHET INFO! Work A.1 (= 16 dc) the entire round - READ COLOR PATTERN. When A.1 has been worked vertically, work 1 round with 2 strands mustard as follows: Work 1 REVERSE SC in every dc - see explanation above. Fasten off.


= off white
= mustard
= dark gray
