PAT­TERN NOTES

Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. When work­ing color blocks, al­ways carry grey by work­ing over strand of yarn, en­clos­ing grey within the stitch. Each color block is worked with a sep­a­rate strand of yarn wound on bob­bins. Fas­ten off green and sap­phire when com­plet­ing each color block.
