Realy lovely, I bought the Crochet Summer edition were the pattern is published, but I can´t find the ´ directions on joining bracelet circles as you go´ which ought to be find at ´my blog´ as you have stated in the pattern. Where did you hide these directions? Thank you, best regards from the Netherlands, where orange is all over the place, due to the soccer world championship!!

This is so cute and have worked it up and played to make it a bit different.  I like the Nienke am looking for the "directions on joining bracelet circles as you go, see my blog."   Do we need the secret password to find them, PLEASE, tehe.  Would love to see them.  Thanks

I think we are all by ourselves, spoooky..;-) don´t think anyone reads these comments but let´s see if we can work it out ourselves ;-)

@sara: the pattern is publised in the Crochet Summer edition!
@Doreen: I worked the ´crochet as you go method,  myself ;-). After closing the first circle, (Ch 7, Ch2, Ch8, Sl st in first ch (of 8) to form ring. Ch2 (counts as second dc) sl st in beg ch2 to join, 22 dc, close circle). And so on until there are 6 circles.  Now you are ready for the return path: Ch7, sl st in 12th dc from opposite-side join on WS of circle. Until you arrive at the last circle. Than repeat Then ch 6, sk next 5dv, sl st in next dc, ch6 sk next 5 dc, sl st in next dc. Now you are back at where it all begon, and you can start the edging.

Lots of succes ladies! Here are my results, will you show yours as well?

This is at the point where you close the second ring, now ch2, attach to ch7+2, at the top of 2, followed by 22 dc in ring.  Hope this makes it clear.

@Nienke Thank you for the instructions and the photos. You seem to be right that nobody looks at the comments. It's now more than a year since you and Doreen asked for help. Congratulations on getting to the Finals of the World Cup - I'm sorry you didn't win!
