Pattern notes

• The pattern is worked in rounds
• The pattern is based on the apache tear pattern.
• The joining chain is never counted as a stitch.
• The end chain is never counted as a stitch.
• Last two scs are always crocheted in the last stitch.
• The pattern increases with 8 stitches (2 on every side of the square) in every round. (except last row)
• The stitch behind the treble in front loop only or front post is not crocheted.
• Round 14 is a direction changing round. The FPtr are crocheted around the apache trebles two rows below, which means that they are the same colour.
• A sc in the back loop of the aptr in round below is crocheted when written in the pattern. As you see in the picture in round 8. “…1aptr, 1sc in blo (this is crocheted in the blo of the aptr in row below), 1 aptr…” The aptr always counts as a normal stitch as usual when the apache tears technique is used.
