Project Note:

• On the sections with waffle blocks, you will need to have 12 bobbins of the magic light and 13 of the white.
• If you would like to color control your blocks, measure how much yarn you used to make the waffle section and white sections in the gauge swatch. Measure that much length plus an extra 12” and turn them into bobbins. Wrap each section of the magic light yarn as one, two, three and keep going to fifteen, so you can pick them up in order. The white bobbins will not need to be numbered.
• On the 3 rows of solid white, you can either make a large bobbin or use the full ball of yarn.
• When switch colors within a row, you will yarn over, insert hook into the stitch, pull loop through, yarn over, pull through two stitches, and then use the new color to yarn and pull through the final two sts on hook.
• Use the entire skein or a large bobbin to make the first 3 rows and the first 5 sts of row 4 and up that strip of white through to row 13. If you do this, you will pick that yarn up again to make the 3 rows of just white. This will save you from having a few more ends to leave in.
