INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES

1. Blanket is worked with two colors throughout. Only one color is worked at a time, the other color is carried under the stitches of the working color. For a clean look, gently pull the yarn before changing colors, to ensure no lose yarn sticks out.

2. 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. Carry color not in use UNDER the stitches of the working color.

3. Blanket can be worked by following written instructions, or referring to color chart.
