ROW 1
WITH 2 STRANDS OF YARN HELD TOGETHER( I USED THE DK. GREY  & SLATE BLUE ),
(NOTE) HOLDING 2 STRANDS OF DIFFERENT YARN TOGETHER GIVES THE LOOK OF A 2 TONE EFFECT

WORK UP THE OTHER SIDE REPEATING STITCHES * TO *, TOP TOP CORNER WITH A SC IN TOP CORNER. SLIP STITCH IN FIRST SC.  FASTEN OFF ONE COLOR ( I FASTENED OFF THE DK. GREY YARN)

*SKIP NEXT SC, SHELL IN NEXT, CONTINUE FROM * AROUND EDGING OF DESIGN UNTIL YOU GET BACK TO FIRST SHELL, SLIP STITCH IN BOTTOM OF FIRST STITCH, FASTEN OFF

WEAVE IN ANY LOOSE ENDS.
