NatCroMo 2010 Mystery Pattern

You will need two well-contrasting colours of the same or equivalent yarn, of a reasonably smooth/evenly spun texture. I recommend solid colours, and thicker yarns, if you do not want the item to be very small.

Notes:
• Do not assume that an instruction covers a complete row. Turn when you are told to, and only when you are told to.
• When colour A is in use, colour B should be carried/crocheted over (as in tapestry crochet), and vice versa.
• I am writing this pattern in UK crochet terms. I will translate, but use one version of the instructions only.
