2 X 50 gram balls for your main colour

I have used yellow, blue, green, peach and tan for the main colour

Scissors

Notes: This pattern consist of 18 X 4” round granny squares 12 X 4” granny triangles with the last round in your main colour. You will then SC them together.

Ok Now is a great time to try it on and see if it fits

Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc) 2 dc in same space, 3 dc in to each gap around join with a slst

Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc) 2 dc in same st, *3 dc in each gap till you reach a join (see pic below) into the corner of the square put 5 tr* rep from *to* join with a slst

 Long Tail Chain Cord

With a H/8-5mm hook 2 meters of DK yarn will make a 1meter long cord

If you need a yarn tail to add beads use two strands of yarn using the second strand as your tail

If you do not need a tail use one strand folded in half

Start with a slip knot

Step 1: Wrap tail yarn around hook from front to back, two loops on hook

Step 2: With working yarn over and pull through both loops one loop on hook
