Carrying Colours in Rows
Review the strip that is used in the Flying Geese Blanket. Notice how the colours of the arrows are carried all the way through to edge. Then carried back and used when needed. The Peppermint Pinwheel Tree Skirt will be the same. Both the colours whether it’s being crocheted or just carried will go to the edge.
At the end of the project. We will cover this up with a single crochet that matches the colour of the pinwheel slice the best.
