Peaked Shell: (3 dc, Picot, 3 dc) in same stitch

Picot: Ch 3, sl st in 3rd chain from hook

Notes:

  1. Beginning ch-3 counts as a dc
  2. When changing colors, do so in the last step of the last stitch of the row before the color change
  3. For stripes or the ripple effect, consider working color sections of 2 or 4 rows to allow you to carry your yarn up the edge of the throw instead of fastening off each color
