  • yes i was wondering if you are ending your rows for the border by cutting them off or wrapping the yarn on the row with MC

    • Either way works. But I decided to cut the yarn at each color change because the space in between changes is two rows of double crochet which in my opinion is a bit too high to have yarn going up on the edge. But again, do what works for you 🙂

  • I am using a variegated yarn, Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Cool Night. I do have a question. The 164 ch is the back part, the width?

      Just looking at the pattern I see after Row 104 your splitting it to make either the Left Side or Right Side with the 79 stitches. You never mention your starting from the BACK Bottom Up, then split for 2 fronts????????????

      • You’re right Elizabeth, is not mentioned that starts from the back. My apologies for that. But in the pattern notes says is made from the bottom up. 🙂
