PATTERN NOTES

The project sizing is accomplished by your hook gauge.  If you would like a S-XL size, use the smaller hook and smaller gauge.  If you would like a 2X-3X size, use the larger hook and larger gauge.  

The gauge is blocked, the fabric of the project stretches quite a bit!  Dimension for each section is given to check your progress. Without giving too much away, a project that is slightly bigger than the schematic size will still fit fine; but a project significantly larger will not work (and you will run out of yarn).  If an unblocked project is measuring over 1” bigger at the end of Section 1, you probably will want to rip and re-crochet with a smaller hook.  

You get to decide when to change colors in the pattern.  You can decide to use all one color, or change after each section, or change when noted in the pattern.  Use color changes as suggestions for when to change color, but you choose what color to use. To help with color placement, you can color in your own choices on the color key and see some examples of 2 and 5 color projects.

The project is broken down into sections.  Each one will have a different stitch pattern.  Please keep an eye out for when to TURN and when NOT TO TURN.  It is done to present the prettiest side of the fabric in each section, but can be easy to miss.
