87cm x 87cm (approx)
14 sts x 10 rows to 10cm over pattern st using 5.00mm hook.
ch = chain, cnr = corner, cont = continue, dc = double crochet,lp/s = loop/s, Rnd = Round, RS = right side, sk = skip, sl st = slip stitch, sp = space,st/s = stitch/es, tr = treble crochet, yoh =yarn over hook.
V-st = (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) in indicated st.
5-dtr fan = (1dtr, [1ch, 1dtr] 4 times) in indicated st.
6-dtr fan = (1tr, [1ch, 1dtr] 5 times) in indicated st.
NOTE - To change colour, work last stitch of old colour to last yoh. Yoh with new colour and draw through all lps on hook to complete st. Cont with new colour. Fasten off old colour.
Using smaller hook and A, make 116 ch.
Row 1: (RS) 1dc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn (115 dc).
Row 2: 3ch, (counts as 1 tr here and throughout), working in back lps only, sk 1st 3 dc, 4tr in next dc, *sk next 3 dc, 4tr in next dc, repeat from * across to last 3 dc, sk next 2 dc, 1tr in last dc, turn ... 28 4-tr groups and 1 tr at each end.
Row 3: 4ch (counts as 1 tr, 1 ch), 1tr in 1st tr (V-st made), *1ch, V-st in sp between next two 4-tr groups repeat from * across, 1ch, V-st in top of turning ch, turn ... 29 V-sts.
Row 4: 1ch, working in front lps only, 1dc in each tr and 1-ch sp across to turning ch-sp, 1dc in turning ch-sp, 1dc in 3rd ch of turning ch, turn ... 115 dc.
Row 5: 1ch, working in back lps only, 1dc in each dc across, turn.
Rows 6-77: Repeat Rows 2-5, 18 times.
Rows 78-80: Repeat Rows 2-4. Do not fasten off.
Change to larger hook.
Rnd 1: 1ch, 2dc in 1st dc, 1dc in each dc across to last dc, 3dc in last dc (cnr made) work 113 dc evenly spaced along the side edge - working across opposite side of foundation ch, 3dc in 1st
ch (cnr made), 1dc in each ch across to last ch, 3dc in last ch (cnr made) work 113 dc evenly spaced along other side edge, 1dc in same dc as beginning (1st cnr completed) join with sl st into 1st dc, change to B in last st ... 464 dc. Fasten off A.
Rnd 2: Using B, 6ch (counts as 1dtr, 1ch), (1dtr, [1ch, 1dtr] 4 times) in same dc as join (1st 6-dtr fan made), *[sk next 3 dc, sl st into next dc, sk next 3 dc, 5-dtr fan in next dc] twice, [sk next 2 dc, sl st in next dc, sk next 3 dc, 5-dtr fan in next dc] 12 times, sk next 3 dc, sl st into next dc, sk next 3 dc, 5-dtr fan in next dc, sk next 3 dc, sl st into next dc, sk next 3 dc**, 6-dtr fan in next cnr dc - repeat from * around, ending last repeat at ** join with sl st into 5th ch of beg ch, change to A in last st ... 64 shells.
