INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • When joining colors, work to last 2 loops on hook of first color. Draw new color through last 2 loops and proceed.
  • When joining a new color, leave a tail approximately 4 inches [10 centimeters] long to ensure you are left with enough yarn to weave in your end.

With A, chain 30.

Slip Knot

  1. Make a loop, then hook another loop through it.
  2. Tighten gently and slide the knot up to the hook.

Chain Stitch

  1. Yarn over hook (yoh) and draw the yarn through to form a new loop without tightening up the previous one.
  2. Repeat to form as many chains (ch) as required. Do not count the slip knot as a stitch.

1st row: 1 single crochet in 2nd chain from hook. *Chain 1. Miss next chain. 1 single crochet in next chain. Repeat from * to end of chain. Turn. (You should have 15 single crochet and 14 chain-1 spaces at end of row).

Single Crochet

  1. Insert the hook into the work (2nd chain (ch) from hook on starting chain), *yarn over hook (yoh) and draw yarn through the work only.
  2. Yarn over hook (yoh) again and draw the yarn through both loops on the hook.
  3. 1 single crochet (sc) made. Insert hook into next stitch: repeat (rep) from * in step 1.

Repeat last row until work from beginning measures 8 inches [20.5 centimeters]. Fasten off.

Fasten Off
Fasten off by cutting working yarn approx 6 inches [15 centimeters] long and draw this end through last loop. Pull tightly to secure.

Weave in ends.

Weaving in Ends
Thread yarn through a blunt tip large eye needle and make small alternating stitches along the wrong side edge of your work. After you have worked about 2 inches [5 centimeters] in one direction, turn and work backwards alternating over the spaces you just worked. Now you can safely cut the end.
