Notes
1. Apron is worked from lower edge upwards. Color changes are used to create fur trim, belt, and buckle.
2. Before beginning, wind B into 2 separate balls, and C and D into 3 separate balls each.
3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color.
Fasten off old color.
