Pattern notes

Numbers in the brackets in the end of each row/round indicates the total sts you must have in the end of every round.

When the number is written in front of the stitch you must make this number of stitches all in next st, if the number is written after the stitch you must make it in all next stitches indicated by this number. For example : 3sc,ch2- it means make 3 sc in next st, ch2. If it is written with the number after like this sc3,ch2– it means make sc in next 3 sts, ch2.

Start filling with feather before the last few rows NOT in the end because it will not be even and it will be difficult.
