----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked back and forth, top down.

Work 42-44-44-47-47-49 loose ch (incl 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 4 mm with Muskat. Turn and work as follows: Work 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook (= 1 dc + 1 ch to turn with), work 1 dc in each of the next 2-4-4-2-2-4 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 6-6-6-7-7-7 more times, work 1 dc in each of the remaining 2 ch = 33-35-35-37-37-39 dc. Turn and work pattern as follows: Work A.1 over the first 11 dc, A.2 (= 2 dc) 6-7-7-8-8-9 times in width, A.3 over the remaining 10 dc - READ CROCHET TIP! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When diagram A.1 to A.3 have been worked vertically, continue pattern and inc the same way until 13-14-14-15-16-17 rows have been worked in total. There are now 71-77-77-81-85-85 tr/ch on row. Inc in each side of A.1 and A.3 is now done but lace pattern continue to decrease inwards into a tip mid front and work as follows: Work 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch (incl 5 ch to turn with), turn and work as follows: Work 1 tr in 6th ch from hook, then work 1 tr in each of the next 1-4-6-3-3-6 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 3-3-4-6-7-8 more times, continue pattern as before over the 71-77-77-81-85-85 tr, then work 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch (incl 5 ch to turn with). Turn and work as follows: Work 1 tr in 6th ch from hook, then work 1 tr in each of the next 1-4-6-3-3-6 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr *, repeat from *-* 3-3-4-6-7-8 more times, continue pattern as before over the 71-77-77-81-85-85 tr, then work 1 tr in each of the remaining tr on row = 107-119-131-145-157-171 sts tr/ch.
Continue with 1 tr in every tr and continue to dec lace pattern mid front into a tip. When 4 ch-spaces remain, finish pattern as shown in diagram A.4. Then work 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 24-26-28-30-32-34 cm from cast-on edge mid front. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the outermost 2 cm in each side in on the back of top and sew small stitches through both layers to make a tunnel to thread the tie through.

TIE:
Work 1 loose tie as follows: Work ch with Muskat on hook size 4 mm until the tie measures 140-150-160-170-180-190 cm, turn and work 1 sl st in every ch but make sure that the sl sts are not worked tighter than ch. Fasten off. Work another tie the same way.

Beg from RS and thread one of the end on tie through outermost hole, around tr and through the other hole (= 2 tie ends out towards RS). Adjust tie so that ends are the same length, then thread the 2 ends through loop on WS and tighten. Repeat in the other side. Then place ties in a cross on the back before threading them through curtain hem - see illustration. Fasten top by making a knot.
