PICOT:
Work ch 2, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from hook.

COLOR CHANGE:
To get a nice transition between the color changes, work last sl st on round with the new color as follows: Insert hook in last ch from beg of round, get the new yarn, make a YO with the new color and pull it through st on hook.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. After 1st round, repeat A.1 4 times in total in width.
