INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES

1. Blocks are joined to previous Blocks as work progresses.

2. All blocks are worked in the same manner after the Foundation row, using colors indicated (see diagram).

3. The Foundation row of each Block is either cast-on all sts (Block A), pick-up sts from the previous Block, then cast-on sts (Block B), cast-on sts and then pick up sts (Block C), or pick up sts from 2 previous Blocks (Block D) .

4. Garter st looks the same on both sides; changing colors every 2 rows will produce a solid-color garter ridge on the RS; a multi-color ridge on the WS. 

5. Carry color not in use loosely up side of work. 

 

HELPFUL

Use a small crochet hook to pick up corner stitches.
