GAUGE: 9 sc and 10 rows = 4" [10 cm]; save time and check your gauge

NOTES:

  • To change colors, work to last 2 loops on hook of first color. Draw new color through last 2 loops and proceed with new color.
  • As you work this pattern, you’ll alternate yarn colors. Carry the color that’s not in use loosely across the top of the previous round and work stitches around it to prevent stranding.
