EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show the colours on the pot holders.
1 square in diagram = 1 treble/double crochet.
* A.1a and A.1b *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times on the round.
* A.2a and A.2b *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times on the round.


COLOUR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colour work as follows: Work the last treble crochet with the first colour, but wait with the last pull-through, change to the next colour and work the last pull-through and then the next treble crochet with the new colour. When working with 2 colours lay the strand you are not working with over the stitch from the previous round and work around this strand so that it is hidden and carried forward.

CROCHET INFO:
The first treble crochet on the round is replaced by 3 chain stitches; finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch.
The first double crochet on the round is replaced by 1 chain stitch; finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.
