2nd round: Work * 5 chain stitch, skip 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next stitch *, repeat from *-* in total 5 times, 5 chain stitch, skip 1 double crochet, 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet at beg of round = 6 chain stitch-loops.

Bonjour Bravo pour toutes les explications qui sont aussi en vidéo ! Je voudrais faire avec ces petites et grandes fleurs un haut de maillot. Pourriez-vous m'indiquer où je peux trouver ce modèle? Encore merci pour ce site qui me rend bien service.
