Use only the yarn specified. Other yarns are likely to produce different results. Quantities are approximate as they can vary between crochet workers. Check the ball bands to ensure all yarn is from the same dye lot.

TENSION

First 3 rounds of Motif A measure 8cm across, using 4.50mm hook. Check your tension carefully. If more than 8cm across use a smaller hook, if smaller use a bigger hook.
Note - The rug and cushion have been worked on a larger hook and at a slightly looser tension than usually recommended.
