Insert hook from right side to wrong side thru any desired st or space, yo and draw a loop to right side. To end a line of surface slip sts, pull up a loop on the right side of fabric; remove hook from loop. Insert hook from wrong side to right side and into dropped loop; pull loop to wrong side. Cut yarn tail; place tail thru loop and pull taut.

NOTES

Sides are worked with overlay rounds over background rounds. Every fourth round, B is worked into the back loop only of the C round and into both loops of the B round to anchor the overlay to the background. When working background and overlay rounds, drop the unused color until it is needed again.
