GAUGE

In red square pattern stitch, 12 sts and 8 dc rows and 14 sc rows = 4"/10 cm.

In black square pattern stitch, 12 sts and 6 rows = 4"/10 cm.

In single crochet (skull pieces), 12 sts and 13 rows = 4"/10 cm.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. The front post stitches (FPdc) are always worked around indicated stitches 2 rows below (one row below row into which you would usually work).

2. On even numbered sc rows, work sc's in each sc and work sc's in skipped sts behind the post stitches (not in the front post stitches).

3. 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 to complete stitch. Fasten off old color and proceed with new color.
