- A. Scarlet ~ red
- B. White
- C. Colonial Blue
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
PU = pick up
Round 1: Join A to any corner, ch 1, *sc 3 times into corner st, sc in each st and the join between blocks to next corner, * repeat from * to * around, sl st to beginning ch 1.
NOTE: You may want to change the sc on either side of the join and the join sp to this: hdc, dc, hdc. Sometimes this area looks low and this will even up the stitches.
NOTE: Round 4 tends to twist yarn. My suggestion is :
- Cut each color of yarn into a piece 4 – 5 yards long (+/-) ~ measured from the tip of your nose to the tip of your fingers. . no yard stick needed.
- Whenever yarn gets twisted, just untwist this amount. It is a LOT EASIER that untwisting 3 skeins.
- You may want to cut the skeins into three different lengths so they will be woven in at different places around the border.
