Tutorial:

Starting Chain and Row 1

Using Yarn A, create a foundation chain of 73 chains.

Row 1: Continuing with Yarn A, double crochet (dc) in the 4th chain from the hook (the first 3 skipped chains count as a dc), and in the next 3 chains. Chain 1, skip the next chain, then double crochet in the next 4 chains. Repeat this pattern across the row until you reach the last chain.

In the last chain, double crochet and change to Yarn B in the final stitch. At the end of this row, you should have twelve 4-dc groups, 13 ch-1 spaces, and a 5-dc group at both the beginning and end of the row.

Row 2: Using Yarn B, chain 1 and turn your work.

Single crochet (sc) in the first stitch. Chain 4, skip the next 4 stitches, then single crochet in the next ch-1 space. Repeat this pattern across the row until you have 5 stitches left.

Chain 4, skip the next 4 stitches, and single crochet in the top of the beginning chain. This row should consist of 15 single crochets and 14 ch-4 spaces.

Row 3:  With Yarn B, chain 3 (this chain counts as a double crochet), and turn your work.

Make 4 double crochets in the first ch-4 space. Chain 1, skip the next stitch, then make 4 double crochets in the next ch-4 space. Repeat this pattern across the row until you reach the beginning chain.

Double crochet in the top of the beginning chain and change to Yarn C. At this point, you should have twelve 4-dc groups, 13 ch-1 spaces, and a 5-dc group at both the beginning and end of the row.

Rows 4-61: Continue to follow the stripe sequence by repeating Rows 2 and 3, alternating yarn colors as specified in the Stripe Sequence, until you’ve completed all 61 rows of the sequence.
