PAT­TERN NOTES

Cir­cu­lar open­ings are cre­ated when stan­dard tre­ble cro­chet stitches are worked within a row of linked tre­ble cro­chet stitches. Over­all lace ef­fect is the re­sult of chain-1 and skipped stitch be­tween each tre­ble cro­chet and linked tre­ble cro­chet. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Loops of chains made be­tween linked tre­ble and stan­dard tre­ble cro­chet stitches are smaller than top loops of tre­ble cro­chet stitches. When work­ing slip stitch rows in front loops of chains and all tre­ble cro­chet stitches, take care not to skip any chains and to keep ten­sion even.
