PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.11. In diagram A.1 to A.7 work pattern as follows: Work row 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 13 and 14 in sc, work the remaining rows in dc. Work ch in each corner in the same color as last st before ch.
Work diagram A.8 to A.11 in dc.

COLOR PATTERN:
When changing color work as follows: Work last dc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next st. When working with two colors, place strand on the color not used over sts from previous row, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows in the round (i.e. pattern on RS and WS will be the same, there will not be any long strand seen from WS). Make sure that the unworked strands do not tighten the piece.
Replace first dc/sc with ch - READ CROCHET INFO, if last dc/sc on previous row and first dc/sc on next row are different color work last dc/sc as follows: Work last dc/sc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, 1 sl st in ch at beg of row, then work ch (= beg of row).

CROCHET INFO:
Work piece back and forth but work piece tog at the end of row as follows:
Beg every row with sc with 1 ch (= first sc) and finish with 1 sl st in first ch at beg of row, turn piece.
Beg every row with dc with 3 ch (= first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row, turn piece.

Then work as follows from RS: Work A.1 over the first 2 sc – READ PATTERN, work the 3 ch with same color as last st in A.1, repeat A.2 3 times in total (work the 3 ch with same color as last st in A.2), finish with A.3 over last sc – READ COLOR PATTERN! REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1 to A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 172 sc on row.
