Rising Star Placemats & Napkin Ring Set
Materials: Worsted Weight Yarn Two 3 ½ oz Skeins of Red and Green

Special Techniques: Chain Colour Change: Yarn over the new colour and draw the yarn through the last
loop on the hook. Leave a short tail of yarn on the back to be woven in later.
Single Crochet Colour Change: Colours are changed while completing the last stitch made with the previous
colour. Work last sc before colour changed indicated on chart until there are two loops on the hook. Drop
the first colour and yarn over with new colour; draw the new colour through the last two loops of the sc.

and from left to right on even numbered rows. Work evenly on 30 sts through out, following chart and colour
key for colour changes. Attach new colours as needed. When a colour is no longer used, break off yarn,
leaving an end to weave in.

20 yds on each. Attach balls of yarn when needed for colour changes.
