Pattern Notes

When working popcorn stitches on a wrong side row, put your hook from back to front of the first dc, and then through the loop from the 5th dc, draw loop through dc, ch 1 to make the popcorns go to the back, which is the right side of the project.
When working popcorns on a right side row, put your hook from front to back of the first dc, and then through the loop from the 5th dc, draw loop through dc, ch 1 to keep the popcorns on the front side of your work.
*Work v stitches in green and popcorn stitches in flower color throughout the pattern *
Carry the green or flower color across the row you are using it in and fasten it off at the end of the row.
To change colors start the double crochet as usual – yarn over and insert hook in stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops then for the last yarn over of the stitch; yarn over and pull the next color through the loops to complete the double crochet with the new color.
Turning ch 3 counts as the first double crochet throughout pattern.
