Notes:

Puff st ch1 does not count as a stitch.

Start with ch3 for dc rounds, ch2 for hdc rounds, ch1 for sc rounds (these count as dc, hdc and sc, respectively), or with standing dc, hdc or sc.

Instructions between *  * are repeated the number of times indicated.

Part 1

Round 1: Start with a magic ring or ch 5 (in this case after ch5, ss into first chain to join, loop made).

Round 2: 12 sc in magic ring or into ch5 loop. Ss into first sc to join. (12 sc)

Round 3: Start in any sc. ch4 (counts as 1 dc + ch1), dc in same stitch (this counts as one v-stitch1). *1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc in next sc* 11 times. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (12 V-stitch1= 24dc, 12ch)

Round 4: Start in any ch1 space. Ch 5 (counts as 1dc + ch2), dc in same ch1 space (this counts as one V-stitch2).*skip 2 stitches, 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc in same ch1 space* 11 times. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (12 V-stitch2 = 24dc, 24 ch)

Round 5: Start in any ch2 space with ch3 (counts as 1 dc), 5 dc in same ch2 space, *sc  between v-stitch2, 6 dc in next ch2 space* 11 times, sc between v-stitch2, ss into 3rd ch to join. (72dc=12 groups of 6 dc, 12 sc)

Round 6: Start in first dc of a 6dc group, ch 3 around post (counts as 1 bpdc), 5 bpdc, fpsc around sc, *6 bpdc, 1 fpsc around sc* 11 times. Ss to 3rd ch to join. (72 bpdc=12 groups of 6bpdc, 12 fpsc)

Round 7: Start in first dc of a 6dc group, ch2 around post (counts as 1 bphdc), 5 bphdc, ch1, *6 bphdc, ch1* 11 times. Ss into 2nd ch to join. (72 bphdc=12 groups of 6bphdc, 12 ch).

Round 8: Start in first bphdc of a 6 bphdc group, ch3 around post (counts as 1 bpdc), 5 bpdc, 1 puff in ch space, *6 bpdc, 1 puff in ch space* 11 times, ss into 3rd ch to join. (72 bpdc=equal to 12 groups of 6bpdc), 12 puff)

Round 9: Start in any sc, ch1 (counts as 1 sc), sc in every sc, fpsc around puff (remember that ch1 to close the puff stitch does not count as a stitch, so there will be 6 sc between puff stitches). Ss into ch1 to join. (72 sc and 12 fpsc)

Round 10: Start in any sc, ch3 (counts as 1 dc), dc in previous sc (in front of the first dc) (this is the first dc-cross). *dc cross* 41 times. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (82 dc=42 dc-cross)

Round 11: Start between the 2 dc of any dc-cross from round 10, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc, 1 dc between dc-crosses. *2dc between the 2 dc of the next dc cross from round 10, dc in between dc-crosses* 41 times. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (126 dc)

Round 12: Start in any sc, ch 1 (counts as 1 sc), sc in every dc. Ss into ch1 to join (126 sc)

Round 13: Start in any ch1 space. Ch 5 (counts as 1dc + ch2), dc in same ch1 space (this counts as one V-stitch2).*skip 2 stitches, 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc in same ch1 space* 41 times. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (42 V-stitch2 = 42dc, 42 ch)

If you want to stop here you do one last round, round 19:

Round 19: *sl st, ch3, sl in every stitch*

If you want to go on to part 2, skip round 19.

 

Part 2

Round 21: Start in the ch1 space of any v-stitch1. Ch3 (counts as 1dc), dc in same ch1 space. 2 dc in every ch1 space around. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (148 dc)

Round 22: Start around any group of 2dc from round 21, ch3 around group of 2dc (counts as 1fpdc), ch2, *fpdc, ch2* 73 times. Ss into 3rd ch to join. (74 fpdc, 74 ch2 spaces)

Round 23: (This round is worked into round 21, behind round 22. Fold round 22 down in front to work into round 21; round 22 should be free in front of round 23) Start in the ch1 space of any V-stitch1.

Round 25: (Be careful with the placement of the first stitch!) Start directly behind any 2dc group from round 22 with a standing fpdc around the 2dc group. Skip the stitch behind the 2dc group in row 24, dc in next 2 st. *1 fpdc, skip dc, 2dc*. Ss into top of fpdc to join. (74 fpdc, 148 dc)

Round 26: Start in any fpdc, ch4 (counts as 1dc + 1ch), 1dc in same stitch. skip 2 stitches. *V-stitch1 in fpdc, sk 2 st* 73 times. Ss into 3rd chain to join. (74 V-stitch1)

Now we start the finishing rounds and I have chosen to do these differently than the finishing rounds of parts 1 and 2.

Congratulations! Romance is ready and the size is about 60 cm in Catona yarn with hook size 3.5 mm after blocking.

I hope you enjoyed the journey and you are happy with what you have created.
