Stripe of 14 big coins.

Intermediate band, working 42 ch sps in rnd 4.

Stripe of 14 small coins.

Intermediate band, only rnd 1. DON’T fasten off.

BELT LOOPS.

Next rnd: ch1 (counts as sc), 3 sc in ch sp, ch4 (counts as tr), turn, tr in next 3 sts, ch1, turn, sc in next 3 sts, 4 sl st across ch4, *18 sc in ch sps (6 sc in each ch sp), ch4, turn, tr in next 6 sts, ch1, turn, sc in next 6 sts, 4 sl st across ch4; rep from * around, end 14 sc, ch4, turn, tr in next 2 sts, ch1, turn, sc in next 2 sts, sl st in begin of rnd.

Next rnd: ch4 (counts as tr), tr in next 3 sts, *ch5, skip 5 sc of previous rnd, tr tr in next sc, ch5, tr in next 7 sc (over tr previous rnd); rep from * around, end ch5, skip 5 sc of previous rnd, tr tr in next sc, ch5, tr in next 3 sc (over tr previous rnd), join with sl st in begin og rnd.

Next rnd: move with sl st into 3rd tr of first 3 tr, ch1 (counts as sc), *ch6, sc in tr tr previous rnd, ch6, sc in 1st tr of  7 tr-group, ch6, sc in last tr in this group; rep from * around, join with sl st in first sc.

Next rnd: work rnd 5 of  INTERMEDIATE BAND AFTER SMALL COINS. Fasten off.

Now work stripe of big coins thus center front and back match at space between two coins.

Work rnds 1-3 of intermediate band after big coins.

In next rnd don’t work on middle10 ch sps of rnd 1 for front, on other all ch sp work rnds 4 and 5 (35 ch sp). Fasten off.

STRAPS.

For each strap work stripe of 6 big coins.

Work intermediate band after big coins (in rnd 4 – 24 ch sps). Fasten off.

Now work stripe of small coins: at first coin join in second ch-2 sp of front intermediate band with dc instead picot and join in same way in next ch-2 sp of front intermediate band, join with dc to dbl tr in next ch sp of front intermediate band held together with ch sp of strap intermediate band, then join with strap intermediate band as come work. So work 7 small coins, 7th coin join with last dbl tr as folls: on body intermediate band skip 6 ch sp for underarm, join dc with dbl tr tog in ch sp of strap intermediate band held together with ch sp of body intermediate band. Then join with dc instead picot in next 2 ch-2 sp of body intermediate band. Then continue small coins across body – 6 total, joining as given before, and same way work small coins across other strap intermediate band – 7 total.

Work rnds 1-3 of intermediate band after small coins.

MEDALLIONS.

Around outer edge of neck work Medallions.

Rnd 1: ch7, skip 3 ch from hook, dc in next ch, *ch10, dc in 4th ch from hook, rep from * 23 times more, end ch3, join with sl st in first ch.

Rnd 2: *join with dbl tr in sc of intermediate band, skip next 5 sc of intermediate band, in ring of medallion work: 4 dc, dc with dc tog in next sc of intermediate band, work 4 dc in ring of medallion, sl st in 4th ch of ch-7 sp (between two adjacent rings of medallions), skip next 5 sc of intermediate band; rep from * around, join with sl st in begin of rnd.

Rnd 3: on opposite side of starting ch: in each ring work 9 dc and sl st in ch between two adjacent medallions, join rnd with sl st in beginning st.

Sew rem hole at underarms.

Thread ribbon through Belt loops, over tr tr and under tr-groups or through other holes as desire.
