NOTES:

1. The wave pattern is created by working sts of varying heights across rows.
2. Dc2tog and hdc2tog decrease the st count. In this pattern each dc2tog or hdc2tog is matched with a ch-1, to keep the st count the same for all rows.
3. Always work dc2tog and hdc2tog over the next 2 sts. The next 2 sts may be 2 sc or they may be a ch-1 and its matching dc2tog or hdc2tog.
4. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st.
