PAT­TERN NOTES

You will be work­ing in the chains and not the spa­ces in this pat­tern un­less oth­er­wise spec­i­fied. Weave in ends as work pro­gresses. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of row counts as first dou­ble cro­chet. Chain-1 at be­gin­ning of row does not count as first sin­gle cro­chet. Join with slip stitch un­less oth­er­wise spec­i­fied. The Front Bor­ders add 1 inch to mea­sure­ment. Bot­tom Bor­ders add 1/2 inch to mea­sure­ment. When pick­ing up stitches on row ends, as for bor­ders, we usu­ally pick up 1 sin­gle cro­chet for each chain-1 turn and 2 sin­gle cro­chets for a chain-3 turn. Most im­por­tant is that your work lies flat. Add or sub­tract stitches to en­sure this.
