Pattern instructions

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.



See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show colours in pattern. 1 square in diagrams = 1 treble crochet.

COLOUR CHANGE IN NORDIC PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colour work as follows: Work last treble crochet with first colour but wait with last yarn over and pull through, switch to next colour and work last yarn over and pull through, then continue working the next treble crochet with the new colour.
When working with two colours place strands for the colour not worked over stitches from previous round, work around the strands so that they are hidden and at the same time follow in the round.

Replace first treble crochet on round with 3 chain stitches. Finish round with 1 slip stitch in third chain stitch from beginning of round.




Worked in the round from bottom up. Finish by plaiting straps that are ties on to bag explained below.

Work 5 chain stitches on hook size 3.5 mm with mustard and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Then work A.1 in the round as follows (work 12 repetitions with A.1 on round) - read COLOUR CHANGE IN NORDIC PATTERN:
ROUND 1: Work 12 treble crochets in ring – READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochet in every treble crochet = 24 treble crochet.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 treble crochet in first treble crochet, 2 treble crochets in next treble crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 treble crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 treble crochet in the first 2 treble crochets, 2 treble crochets in next treble crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 treble crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUNDS 5-10: Continue with increases and pattern as before, i.e. on every round work 1 treble crochet more between increases. When A.1 has been worked vertically, there are 120 treble crochets on round.
ROUND 11: Work A.2 in the round (= 12 repetitions of 10 treble crochets). Continue pattern like this without increasing. On round marked with arrow in A.2 work as follows: * 1 treble crochet in each of the first/next 3 treble crochets, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 treble crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Continue until A.2 has been worked, fasten off. Bag measures approx. 34 cm from mid under bag and up.

Cut 18 strands mauve and 18 strands old pink (each strand should be approx. 120 cm) = 36 strands. Place the strands together and tie a loose knot in one end, leave approx. 12 cm after knot. Distribute strands in 3 piles with 12 strands in each pile. Plait the three piles tog until plait measures approx. 68 cm. Divide strands into 2 piles. Thread the 2 halves through bag, 3 treble crochets apart, in a round with holes. Tie the 2 halves together in a knot on the front of bag. Untie the knot at beg of plait and fasten to bag in the same way but in the opposite side, approx. 22 cm from the first knot. Make another braid the same way and tie in the opposite side of bag – see picture.

Is the yarn amount for colour 59 old light pink correct? Or should it be the same amount as the mauve colour 60? As having made this I've definitely used more old pink than mauve.

Dear Julie, thanks for the feedback, a correction will be made. Happy crocheting!

Tutto chiaro grazie per ora!

Buongiorno! Nei giri 5-10 cosa significa ‘lavorare una maglia alta in più tra gli aumenti’? Se ad ogni giro per 6 giri (giro 5,6,7,8,9,10) aumento di 24 punti al giro n. 11 avrò 192 maglie totale. Inoltre l’aumento in più in corrispondenza di quale punto deve essere inserito per non rovinare la simmetria del motivo? Grazie mille

DROPS Design 15.04.2019 kl. 11:36:

Buongiorno Sosso. P.es al giro 5 lavora: 1 m.alta in ognuna delle prime 3 m.alte, 2 m.alte nella maglia successiva e così su tutto il giro; al giro 6: 1 m.alta in ognuna delle prime 4 m.alte, 2 m.alte nella m successiva. E così via. Il diagramma A.1 viene ripetuto 12 volte sul giro; ad ogni giro aumenta 12 m; quindi negli ultimi 6 giri aumenta 12x6= 72 m, arrivando così a 120 m. Buon lavoro!
