MATERIALS

Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight yarn. Made with double strands. You hold two strands of the yarn together while working the pattern. I bought Red Heart Super Saver skeins, 198 g (7 oz,) and had a lot left over. So I am not exactly sure about how much yarn is required.
Sometimes Red Heart Super Saver yarn, even though it's worsted weight, will be a little different in weight than maybe the last skein you bought. So be sure to check your gauge and go a hook size larger or smaller as needed.

Hook: 6.00 mm (J hook)

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
fpdc - front post double crochet
tog - together
sc2tog - single crochet 2 together
dc2tog - double crochet 2 together
TBL - through back loops
