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 dc, work the remaining rows in tr. Work ch in each corner in the same colour as last st before ch.

COLOUR PATTERN:
When changing colour work as follows: Work last tr with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour and work last pull through, then work next st. When working with two colours, place strand on the colour 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 tr/dc with ch - READ CROCHET INFO, if last tr/dc on previous row and first tr/dc on next row are different colour work last tr/dc as follows: Work last tr/dc with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour 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 dc with 1 ch (= first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in first ch at beg of row, turn piece.
Beg every row with tr with 3 ch (= first tr) and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row, turn piece.
