Ch = Chain
St(s) = Stitch(es)
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
*Finished dimensions: 60×70 cm
*US crochet terms are used in this pattern.
*’SC 10′ means SC into the next 10 stitches.
*The turning chain ch 1 does NOT count as a SC.
*Total stitches are indicated in between < >.
*Changing Color: At the last stitch of the row, insert the hook and yarn over, drop the working color. Then grab the new color and lay it on top of the hook. Pull the new color through the old color loops. Turn the project and ch 1.
*Spike Stitch: It’s like a regular single crochet, but you work 3 rows down (for this pattern) instead of your current row. Insert the hook into the 3 rows down stitch, yarn over and pull through like making a normal single crochet, yarn over and pull through both two loops. This way will make your stitches elongated. Try not to make it so tight.
