FIN­ISHED MEA­SURE­MENTS 451/2 inches x 563/4 inches MA­TE­RI­ALS • Red Heart With Love medium (worsted) weight acrylic yarn (7 oz/ 370 yds/198g per skein): 3 skeins #1621 ev­er­green 2 skeins each #1601 let­tuce

and #1207 corn­silk 1 skein #1915 mer­lot • Size K/101/2/6.5mm Tu­nisian cro­chet hook or size needed to ob­tain gauge • Size K/101/2/6.5mm cro­chet hook • Stitch mark­ers: 4 • Ta­pes­try nee­dle GAUGE 14 sts = 4 inches; 10 rows = 4 inches PAT­TERN NOTES Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Each row in Tu­nisian cro­chet con­sists of 2 parts: a For­ward Pass where you pick up the stitches and a Re­turn Pass where you work the stitches off the hook. The loop re­main­ing on the hook at end of a Re­turn Pass is the first stitch of the next row. Right side of work is al­ways fac­ing. Change color at the end of a Re­turn Pass by draw­ing through fi­nal 2 loops with the new color. Fas­ten off cur­rent color if it would need to be car­ried up more than 1 row. The yarn overs be­tween the Tu­nisian Sim­ple Stitches will cre­ate eye­lets through which you will weave chain lengths for the ver­ti­cal stripes. On edg­ing, move cor­ner mark­ers up with each round. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of round counts as first dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-2 at be­gin­ning of round counts as first stitch un­less oth­er­wise stated. Join with slip stitch in in­di­cated stitch un­less oth­er­wise stated.
