2. On 2-color rows, carry the yarn that is not used along and crochet over it with the working yarn.
3. Do not turn work when working in the round. All rounds are worked with right side facing.
4. 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.
