GAUGE

In pat­tern: 1 pat­tern rep = 21/2 inches; 1 ver­ti­cal pat­tern rep = 11/2 inches Take time to check gauge.

PAT­TERN NOTES

Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of row counts as first dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. When chang­ing col­ors, leave 8- inch ends for seam­ing sides to­gether. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated. Front piece is 1 pat­tern re­peat shorter than back piece, so same color will not meet at top of shoul­ders.
