Pattern Notes

Both versions of the pattern use the same stitch and round repeats. The only differences between the two versions are the numbers of starting chains and colour changes. The pattern is made up of treble (double in US terminology) crochet stitches, with the placement of front post trebles and back post trebles creating the textured rectangles. For both versions, you will be creating a long starting chain, and you may find it easier to place a marker every 50 chains.
