Crochet Lola

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. When working in the rnd, do not join at end of rnds and do not turn at beg of rnds.
2. When you see "- 12 sts" in the instructions, this tells you how many sts you should have at the end of that specific rnd or row.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
