EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

CROCHET TIP FOR THE CHAIN STITCH:
If you work outermost on the hook the chain stitch will often be too tight; 1 chain stitch should be as long as 1 double crochet is wide.

CROCHET INFO:
On each round of double crochets / treble crochets / double-treble crochets replace the first stitch with 1 chain stitch / 3 chain stitches / 4 chain stitches. The round ends with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch / 3rd chain stitch / 4th chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3.

Nämä ovat menneet vahingossa väärinpäin. Koko tietenkin pienenee huovutuksen jälkeen Mitat huovutuksen jälkeen: Halkaisija: n. 41 cm. Mitat ennen huovutusta: Halkaisija: n. 58 cm.

Les dimensions avant et après feutrage ne devraient-elles pas être inversées ?

Bonjour Christiane, effectivement, l'ouvrage est censé être plus petit après feutrage, nos stylistes vont vérifier cette erreur, merci pour votre retour.
