Project Note:

1. Any Worsted Weight yarn can be substituted.
2. Any colors can be substituted for the colors used.
3. It is very important to keep your tension when changing colors.
4. When changing colors, yarn over, insert hook and pull up a loop, and yarn over hook are all done with your current color. When you pull through all loops, you do that with your new color.
5. You will need to create separate bobbins or skeins of color for each section. It is written in the pattern when you can fasten off each color.

Pattern :

Chain 152 in Tan

Row 1: HDC in third chain from the hook and across (150 sts)

Rows 2-7: ch 2, HDC across (150 sts)

Row 8: ch2, HDC Tan (63), HDC Grey (24), HDC Tan (63)

(The rest of the rows will start with a ch 2. The stitch you will use for the rest of the project is half double crochet (HDC). There are 150 sets on every row. I did not write that on each line to make it easier to see how many you need of each color.)
