Pattern Notes (read before starting):

  • You can purchase an ad free PDF of this pattern on Ravelry or Etsy
  • The turning chain does not count as a stitch
  • If your work begins to twist it’s fine and expected. You can block it out at the end
  • For a less long product you can remove rows 71-140 and use only 4 colors
  • If you are using a heavier weight yarn you can remove rows from the even sections – each section should measure 12”
