INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES -

1. Five separate Strips are worked, then crocheted tog to make the Afghan.
2. The yarn colour is changed to make stripes. To change yarn colour, work last st of old colour to last yarn over. Yarn over with new colour and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Proceed with new colour. To reduce the number of ends to sew in later, cut and fasten off old colour only when instructed.
3. When instructed to "change to dropped loop" return the dropped loop to hook and adjust size of loop to reach to level of current row. Draw dropped loop through all loops on hook to complete last st of old colour and proceed with new colour.
