PAT­TERN NOTES

Con­trast Color can be worked as it comes off the cake; to du­pli­cate sin­gle-color bands as shown in pho­to­graph, be­gin each re­peat of rounds 22–29 at be­gin­ning of next color. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less other­wise stated. In round 21, work over Con­trast Color for added sta­bil­ity to Bas­ket Sides. When chang­ing color in Bas­ket Sides, carry and work over color not in use on wrong side of tapestry cro­chet sec­tion. Do not cut or fas­ten off un­less other­wise stated.
