The piece is worked in the round from the centre out. When the piece is finished it is felted in the washing machine.

SEATING PAD:
Start with hook size 7 mm and Eskimo and work according to diagram A.1 - work in the round without turning the piece until A.1 is finished. Turn the piece and continue in the round from this side as follows: Work according to diagram A.3 a total of 14 times on the round (A.2 shows how the rounds start and finish). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When the diagram has been completed the seating pad measures approx. 66 cm in diameter. Cut and fasten the strand well.

FELTING:
