INSTRUCTIONS

ABBREVIATIONS

sp= space, lp= loop, st= stitch,ch= chain, beg= beginning, slst= slipstitch, dc= double crochet, htr= half treble, mc= main colour, cc= contrast colour

SPECIAL ABBREVIATIONS

fdc= foundation row worked in dc - 2 ch, pull up lp in 1st ch, * yoh, pull through 1 lp [ch made], yoh, pull through both lps [dc made], pull up lp in ch made, and repeat from* for each foundation
st required. flps = work stitch into 2 front loops of htr (foremost loops - see illustration below)

Special notes: For best results, change colour by pulling the new colour through the last 3 loops of the htr when finishing the stitch before. You carry the unused colour of yarn across, working it in with each htr, not only to hide the colour but also this means that the next colour will be ready to use when you need it.
