TENSION

12 dc and 14 rows (10cm x 10cm square) in colour work pattern.

ABBREVIATIONS

Beg = Begin(ning), Ch = Chain(s), Cont = Continue, Pat = Pattern, Rep = Repeat, Rnd(s) = Round(s), Dc = Double crochet, Dc2tog = Draw up a loop in each of next 2 stitches. Yoh and draw through all 3 loops on hook, Sl st = Slip stitch, St(s) = Stitch(es), Tog = Together, Yoh = Yarn over hook

Before working with Caron� x Pantone� multishade yarn braid, separate each color link and wind into 5 separate balls for each braid.

Each color link will be referenced by its Pantone� color # (see label).

Designate each different shade of the 5 separate yarn balls as Contrast A, B, C, D and E as noted in Materials section (or as desired).

Due to finite amount of yarn in each shade, pattern gauge must be matched to ensure successful results

When working from chart and joining new color, work to last 2 loops on hook. Draw new color through last 2 loops, then proceed in new color.

Carry color when not in use loosely across top of previous rnd and work sts around it to avoid stranding.
