INSTRUCTIONS

SPECIAL TERM

  • long-sc: Long single crochet —Insert hook in indicated stitch in indicated number of rows below, yarn over and draw up a loop (to current row height), yarn over and draw through two loops on hook. Notes: Take care to draw up the loop to the current row height so that the stitch doesn't pull downwards. Do not work into the corresponding stitch in the current working row. The row into which a stitch is usually worked is "1 row below" the current row (being worked). A stitch "2 rows below" is in the row immediately beneath the row into which a stitch would usually be worked. Similarly, a stitch "3 rows below" in the row 2 rows beneath the row into which a stitch would usually be worked.

NOTE: To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over, yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook. Proceed with new color.
