Above is the original, made with 3 colors. Isn't it lovely! Check the Ravelry page linked above, for more pics. And here's the one I made, also using just 3 colors (unblocked):
Now for my notes!
- Be sure to read the designer's Special Stitches descriptions - don't get confused, they make more sense with hook in hand!
- If you don't need the step by step photo tutorial, print just pages 1-3 to save paper and ink.
- The pattern itself is very easy and well written. Her note after Round 10, I was in the same spot! But of course take your own measurements.
- Since I used 3 colors as in the original pattern, I followed the color change instructions as written. My Color A was White, Color B was Green, and Color C was Blue.
