Comments

The pattern is written strangely and it took me a while to find it because it's not listed in the abbreviations, but if you look at the colors after Red Heart Super Saver, you'll see that E is the color Aran (in this case). Looking at the picture, it's basically the color that is used to join the squares. Good luck!
