    Pattern notes

    I do not count chains in my stitch count.

    Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

    Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc increase in next stitch. eg. (sc x2, inc) would mean sc in first stitch, single crochet in second stitch, then increase in next stitch.

    Make all colour changes at the end of the previous row.

    When fastening off leave a long tail for sewing if you are attaching the appliqué to something. If you are not sewing the appliqué to anything weave in ends.
