This is not a beginner’s pattern.
This pattern uses front post double crochet (fpdc) as well as back post double crochet (bpdc) There are several good tutorials online of how to complete these stiches, as well as Youtube videos that will walk you through them. It is expected that you know these stitches and are comfortable with them before beginning the pattern.

Items Needed:
Less than 4oz. of WW yarn
H hook for body

Yo, pull through all three loops, LTC is complete:

Ch 2 at the beginning of each dc row, counts as first dc. For rows beginning with fpdc: ch 2, fpdc down into stitch you slipped to (will force the ch 2 behind the fpdc) and ignore ch 2. Slip to first stitch at the end of every row.

For color changes: color change at the beginning of a dc row, this will insure that the LTC that goes down over the row will match.
