From now on you'll work in rows, turning the piece at the end of each row. Each color stripe will be made of 3 rows, changing colors at the end of each third row. Do not cut yarn, carry color not in use from row to row.

Color change: work the last sc of the row till half, having two loops on hook, join other color yarn with a sl st and pull through the 2 loops on hook.
