NOTES
1) Starting chain for colors (on charts) for each panel is made by reading from left to right across Row 1 of charts. Then when Row 1 is worked, from right to left, you will be working on the  right side of the panel. The next row will be Row 2. Do this on all the panels at the beginning.
2) Read through all the instructions before starting.
3) To change color work last stitch of old color to last yarn over, yarn over with new color and pull through all loops on hook to complete stitch.

HELPFUL
1) Place stitch markers at the top of each panel to mark the top and right side. This will help in lining up the panels to be sewn together.
2) Embroider each panel when it is completed, do not sew panels together before embroidering.
