Cubes pattern: the quantity of sts of the set-up row is multiple 6 + 1. Work due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-7th rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-7th rows, finish with the 3rd row of the pattern.
Structured pattern: treble crochets in circle rows. Start every circle row with 4 initial chain sts instead of the 1st treble crochet and finish with 1 slip st in the last chain st of base.
2 x 2 rib.
Stitches control: cubes pattern, Alta Moda yarn: 20,5 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Structured pattern, Bombolo yarn: 9 sts x 3,5 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
