-Pattern worked from the Bottom of the design to the top

-the little numbers next to the colors of yarn used, indicate the color that is indicated in the color change (example: CC2 means change to color orange)

Stitch Location

bb - Back Bump. The back side of the chain, the 3rd loop, when worked in forces the main two loops to one side.

Other important information

Row

Row: working back and forth

Rnd

Round: working entire circumference of piece. This could mean working in the side bars of previous rows made.


sN vs Ns

If the number is before the stitch, that number of stitches in one stitch. if the number is after the stitch, that stitch is done over that number of stitches of previous row. Example 5dc = 5 dc in next stitch, dc 5 = dc over the next five stitches

[ sN, sN ] x N

Do what is between the brackets ( […] ) for the indicated number of times (x N). example [sc 1, 2dc, tr 1] x 5: you would single crochet, two double crochet, treble crochet and repeat that sequence five times for a total of 20 stitches across the 15 stitches of the previous row.

CC

Color Change, switching which color yarn is the working color
