NOTES
1. It is highly recommended that you watch Marly Bird’s tutorial videos on planned color pooling before beginning this project: Click/Tap Here
2. You may have to tighten or loosen some stitches as you go in order to keep the color pooling intact. Keep a
variety of hook sizes on hand to help resize your stitches.
3. Different dye lots of the same colorway may change the number of stitches obtained in any given color. Count the number of stitches YOU get to work through one full sequence, as well as in each color section, and maintain that throughout the pattern.

MOSS STITCH
Ch an even number of sts.
Row 1: Skip 3 ch, sc in next ch, * ch 1, skip 1 foundation ch, sc in next ch; repeat from * to end, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as a stitch now and throughout), sc in next ch-1 space, * ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * to end finishing with a sc in last ch-3 space, turn.
Row 3: Ch 2 (counts as a stitch now and throughout), sc in next ch-1 space, * ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * to end finishing with a sc in last ch-2 space, turn.
Repeat Row 3 only for Moss st.

WRISTERS
With A, ch through at least 1 full color sequence, with the last loop on hook being the first loop of a new color just after a color change in the yarn.
Row 1 (right side): Skip 3 ch (counts as as st), sc in the 4th ch from hook, * ch 1, sc around the foundation ch (instead of going into a ch st); repeat from * until 1 full color sequence has been completed on this row. Count the number of sc made in each individual color in the colorway and note it down. Leave remaining ch sts unworked. Undo one st repeat (sc, ch 1), turn.
Row 2 (wrong side): Ch 2 (counts as a st now and throughout), sc in next ch-1 space, * ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * to end finishing with a sc in last ch-3 space, turn.
Note: As you work this row and all remaining rows, you MUST get the correct number of sc in each color in order to maintain the planned color pooling. Change hook sizes, or actual st used, to get the correct color in place.
If you use the same number of sts per color that you counted on Row 1, it will work out.
Row 3 (right side): Ch 2 (counts as a st now and throughout), sc in next ch-1 space, * ch 1, sc in the next ch-1 space; repeat from * to end, finishing with a sc in last ch-2 space, turn.
Note: The color of the sts on this row will shift to the left or right by 1 st from the previous right side row depending on the colorway and if you are right or left handed. It doesn’t matter which direction the stitch shifts as long as it is off-set by 1.
Row 4 (wrong side): Ch 2 (counts as a st now and throughout), sc in next ch-1 space, * ch 1, sc in the next ch-1 space; repeat from * to end, finishing with a sc in last ch-2 space, turn.
Note: The color of the sts on this row will shift to the left or right by 1 st from the previous wrong side row depending on the colorway and if you are right or left handed. It doesn’t matter which direction the stitch shifts as long as it is off-set by 1.
Rows 3-34: Repeat Rows 3 and 4 alternately.
Fasten off.
Make other Wrister the same.

FINISHING
Squish or stretch the sts on foundation chain to match the width of the rest of the piece. You can slide the sts around along the foundation chain, as with an adjustable ring. Unravel unused foundation ch sts and weave in yarn tail to secure foundation.
Sew foundation row to final row.

Edging
Work edging at both openings of wristers as follows:
Join B with a slip st in any space along edge.
Round 1: Ch 2, * sc in next space, ch 1; repeat from * around, join with slip st in beginning ch-2 space.
Rounds 2-7: Ch 2, * sc in next ch-1 space, ch 1; repeat from * around, slip st in beginning ch-2 space.
Fasten off.

ABBREVIATIONS
A, B = Color A, Color B;
ch = chain;
sc = single crochet;
st(s) = stitch (es);
* or ** = repeat whatever follows the * or ** as indicated.
