Why is it that the directions don't seem to match the picture? The yarn requirements mention 4 colors but I only see 3 in the picture. Also just glancing through the instructions I don't see how they will give the color square pattern (although I could be wrong since I was just reading through them and not actually crocheting). Thoughts?
