NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. * Insert hook through loop, get the yarn from ball, pull yarn through loop, make 1 YO on hook and pull YO through st on hook = 1 dc *, repeat from *-* until there are 8 dc in loop, finish with 1 sl st in first dc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

CROCHET INFO-1:
When working in the round beg every round with 1 ch. This ch does NOT replace first dc. Finish round with 1 sl st in first ch at beg of round. This beg and end is not written in pattern but applies to every round when working in the round.

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

STRIPES-1:
Work 1 round in every colour in the following order:
* cerise, off white, powder pink, goldenrod, off white, rust, off white *, repeat from *-*.

STRIPES-2:
Work 2 rows in every colour in the following order:
* powder pink, goldenrod, off white, rust, off white, cerise, off white *, repeat from *-*.

Bonjour, A la fin du talon doit-on toujours avoir 31-33-35 mailles avant d'arrêter ? Merci
