This version of the stitch was crocheted using three different colors of Cascade 220 yarn:

  • Color A: Primavera -- 8903, which is the green color
  • Color B: Lilac mist -- 8912
  • Color C: Robin egg blue -- 8905

Anticipate color changes at the end of every row. When you reach the last stitch in each row, work all the steps except the last step in the old color. To complete the stitch, draw through a loop of the new color. Work your turning chain and the next row in the new color.
