Notes on yarn
If your yarn gets more stitiches to the inch (2.25 to 3) than what I used, that means your yarn is smaller than what I used and you may need to crochet with more strands to get a full fabric. If your yarn gets fewer stitches to the inch (1 to 1.5) than what I used, that means you could try fewer strands than four. Make a practice swatch, 5 stitches by 5 rows, before you start so you know you like the fabric.
yarn preparation Combine and hold 4 strands together for this project.
