Every Other Stitch for Sharper Angles

This square builds on the angling skills learned in the previous two squares. You’ll be creating sharper angles by increasing and decreasing in every other stitch. The angles are not quite as smooth as those in Square 5, but by combining increases and decreases with late color changes, you can avoid the pixelated stair-step effect you see in typical single crochet colorwork.
