1. Carry the old color through by working stitches in contrasting color over the old color. This keeps both colors close to the hook making color changes easier.
2. Just before the last color change on each row (unless otherwise indicated) you can drop the old color, then pick it up on the way back.
FOUNDATION CHAIN: Ch 65 using MC.
ROW 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hk and in next 7 chs. Chain to CC and work a sc in each of the next 8 chs. *Change to MC and work a sc in each of the next 8 chs. Change to CC and work a sc in each of the next 8 chs. Rep from * across. Ch 1, turn.
