    NOTES

    1. Mitts are worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern is easy to do, but it's important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.

    2. The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-st “peaks” and skipped st “valleys”. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned. 3 sts are worked into the center st of peaks, and sts are skipped over valleys.

    3. When working in ripple crochet, your piece may not lay flat until you've worked a few rows.

    4. Do not cut yarn between color changes, carry unused color along side edge of piece.
