COLOUR CHANGE:
To get the neatest transition when changing colours, work the last slip stitch of the round with the new colour as follows: Put the hook in the 1st/3rd/4th/5th chain stitch from the beginning of the round, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through the loop on the hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

FELTED SEATING PAD:
Start with crochet hook size 8 mm and off white. Work 4 chain stitches and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in 1st chain stitch. Work STRIPES-1 and COLOUR CHANGE – see description above and work pattern in the round from diagram A.2 in total 8 times on the round. A.1 shows how the rounds start and finish. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When the whole of diagrams A.1 and A.2 have been worked in height, the seating pad measures approx. 45 cm in diameter. Cut and fasten the strand.

Work another seating pad in the same way, but work with the opposite colours, in other words you work STRIPES-2 – see description above.

FELTING:
Place the seating pads in the washing machine using a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach and together with a towel. Wash at 40 degrees with the normal centrifuge and without pre-wash. After washing, shape the seating pads while they are still wet. Later, wash them as normal wool garments.

Förstår inte vad den hel svarta symbolen är i början av varv 7 och 9.

Hei Barbro. Dette er symbol 4 i symbolforklaringen: = Omgangen starter med 4 luftmasker og avsluttes med 1 kjedemaske i 4.luftmaske. God fornøyelse

Hur ska man veta hur många stolpar man ska göra runt luftmaskbågen, hur ska man räkna ut det själv....??? Jag förstår inte det, det brukar ju vara hela diagram, kanske jag som inte är så haj på det här ... Tacksam för svar

Hej, du ska upprepa diagram A.2 totalt 8 gånger på varvet. Diagram A.1 visar hur varvet börjar och slutar.
