Pattern Notes
• Ch1 does not equal a st.
• Ch2 equals a st, place your last st of ea row on the top of the ch2.
• When indicated to switch colors, switch colors on the last st of row.
• You will be cutting yarn in this project, so be prepared for ends to be weaved in. You will mainly be cutting CB, since only two rows of CB are required per every 6 rows. You may be able to carry up the yarn; it’s up to you.
• Where it says to “1 sc in the middle loop of the same st and in the middle loop of ea st to end” – See pictures at the bottom of pattern for tutorial. It will assume that you know it’s a loop of the Hhdc of the row below
