Materials:
Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in:
Kelly Green, Taupe, Mustard
G hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors

Pattern notes:

Chain 1 in the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch

SC2tog - single crochet 2 together AKA decrease is worked as follows: insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops

Loop stitch is worked as follows: (hold the working yarn around your index finger) insert hook into stitch, grab the yarn from behind the index finger as well as the yarn in front of the index finger, pull up a loop (at this point you can pull the working yarn to make the loop on the backside of the work smaller or pull the loop to be bigger), yarn over, pull through all loops on hook. This will create a loop on the backside of your work
