NOTES

Pattern is designed so you can use any colours at any point. Change colour on the final yrh of st before you want to change colour and leave yarn on the WS of your work ready to pick up again on the next row. Work over as many yarn ends as possible to reduce the number of ends that you’ll need to weave in. Make sure you balance the colours used with the yarn quantities that you have. The table shows the number of balls of yarn you will need in total. You can choose how many of each colour you wish to use.
