Drop Dark, attach Light in 1st sc. 2nd rnd: 2 sc in same st where thread was attached, 2 h dc in next h dc, 2 dc in each dc (24 sts). Drop Light, pick up Dark. 3rd rnd: * Dc in next st, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around (36 sts). Drop Dark, pick up Light. 4th rnd: * Dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st.
