CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc round with 1 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Replace first htr at beg of every htr round with 2 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in first htr at beg of round.

CROCHET 2 HTR TOG:
Work 2 htr into 1 htr as follows: Make 1 YO, insert hook in next st, pull thread through, make 1 YO, insert hook in same st, pull thread through, make 1 YO and pull thread through all 5 sts on hook.

COLOUR CHANGE TIP: 1
To get a nice transition between the colour changes, work last sl st on round with the new colour as follows: Insert hook in 1st/2nd ch from beg of round, get the new yarn, make a YO with the new colour and pull it through st on hook.

COLOUR CHANGE TIP 2:
Fasten the threads after every colour change by letting the thread from previous row be worked in the piece a bit before cutting it off and fastening it (work with the new colour around the previous colour).
