Featuring worsted weight yarn in seafoam, gray, and black, this easy pattern will help you practice color changing!

The stitches you need to be familiar with are double crochet and half double crochet. These are two of the most popular stitches in crochet, and by working long rows of these stitches, you'll become familiar with them in no time at all!
