Pattern Notes:

  • Do your color changes when joining, and alternate colors as you’d like.
  • Carry up your color to make it easier to pick up for next rounds.
  • The written pattern does not include when to change colors. It will assume that you will change colors as you’d

  • You can make your cozy taller. Just add extra rounds than suggested in the pattern.
