PAT­TERN NOTES

All sin­gle cro­chet stitches are worked with color A; all front post stitches are worked with color B un­less oth­er­wise stated. As colors change within each round, carry color not in use loosely across wrong side of piece un­til next needed. This loose strand is re­ferred to as the “carry- along yarn.” The carry- along yarn of the pre­vi­ous round is re­ferred to as the “float.” Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Re­fer to Stitch Di­a­gram as needed. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated. The join­ing slip stitch at the end of a round is not the first stitch of the next round. En­case the carry- along yarn and float of pre­vi­ous rounds as sin­gle cro­chet stitches are worked.
