500 (550) 600g of orange yarn (50% cotton, 50% polyester; 90m/50g);

Relief pattern: the quantity of sts 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-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Fancy pattern: 1st row: double crochets, make 3 chain sts increase instead of the 1st double crochet;
2nd row: relief double crochets through back loop, make 2 chain sts increase instead of the 1st relief double crochet;
3rd row: relief double crochet through front loop, make 2 chain sts increase instead of the 1st relief double crochet. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Chain: consists of separate parts. For the 1st part, make 8 chain sts + 3 chain sts increase and work with fancy pattern. In 19 cm = 21 rows from the set-up row, finish your work and sew the set-up and final rows. Make the following parts in the same way, but insert them through the previous part before sewing. Totally, make 10 (10) 11 parts and circle them in the ring. For this, insert the last part in the 1st part before sewing.
Stitches control: 23 sts x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
