Starting at a corner, join yarn with a SC – work 1 SC into every ST,
Note: when working into rows work 1 SC into the SC rows and 2 SC into the DC rows.
Rnd 2: join new color with a SL ST into first SC – work 1 SC into each ST
Rnd 3 – 5: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 6: join new color with a SL ST into first SC – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC) work 1 DC into each ST

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
