1. To change color: work last st of old color to last yarn over, yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Carry colors not in use loosely up side of blanket. Take care to conceal the carried strands when working the border.

2. When picking up a new color, take care not to pull the carried yarn too tight or too loose along the edge.

3. Add new balls of yarn at the beginning of a row, to avoid the need to weave in ends in the body of the blanket.
