Pattern

You will need:

  • Cotton yarn: I used Yarnart macrame cotton
  • Hook: H / 5.0mm
  • Needle (optional) for sewing the inner part
  • You can use a stitch marker for tracking rows

Abbreviations:

  • sc - single crochet
  • inc - increase (two single crochet in the same stitch)
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • (..) - represents the sequence that will repeat
  • x and number - the number of times to repeat a sequence
  • [..] - the number between square brackets is the number of loops at the end of row

Notes:

The pattern is written in US terminology.
