Special Stitches

Single Crochet Two Together (sc2tog): Insert hook in stitch indicated, yarn over, pull loop through, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over, pull loop through, yarn over, pull through three loops on hook.

Notes

Rows completed When the pattern indicates to work until a certain number of rows have been completed from beginning, the beginning indicates the very first row of that piece of the garment; i.e., the row where you did the initial foundation chain (the very beginning row).

Switching Colors Just prior to pulling the last loop through to complete a stitch, drop first color, yarn over and pull through loop of second color to complete stitch. Proceed with second color.
