Project Instructions

    Use a gauge of 19 sc (4 inch) in ripple pattern and 8 rows (5 inch) measured from top to bottom of a peak to crochet a pillow that measures approximately 13 inch long x 16 inch wide. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere.
    Notes:
    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. Cut old color.
    Make 2 Pillows – 1 with White and True Blue and 1 with White and Blue Hawaii.
