PAT­TERN NOTES

Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Re­fer to Stitch Di­a­grams as nec­es­sary. In stripe se­quence, do not fas­ten off un­used col­ors; carry them on wrong side of work. For body stripes, when next color in se­quence is at op­po­site end of work (rows 6, 10, 16 and 20), do not turn; at op­po­site end of work, skip first sin­gle cro­chet, pull up loop with next color in se­quence in next sin­gle cro­chet and work in pat­tern as in­di­cated. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated.
