Materials:
RED HEART® Super Saver®: 1 skein each of 360 Café Latte A, 722 Pretty in Pink B, 373 Petal Pink C, 520 Minty D, 324 Bright Yellow E, and 312 Black F Note: Only small amounts of E and F are needed
Crochet Hook: 3.75 mm [US F-5]

2. 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.
