Intarsia explained - (colour Changing) 

* The colour change happens on the last stitch of the current colour before the colour change.
- Do the first part of the single crochet (pull up a loop) with the current colour and then finish the stitch (pull through the 2 loops) with the next colour.
* Example - “Sc in nxt 6 sts, Bsc in nxt 4 sts, Sc in nxt 3 sts” Do the first 5 stitches with Vanilla, pull up a loop on the 6th stitch with the Vanilla and drop the yarn, complete the 6th stitch with Baby Peach yarn. Sc in the next 3 sts and pull up a loop for the 4th stitch with Baby Peach yarn, drop the yarn and finish the stitch with Vanilla. Do the remaining 3 stitches in Vanilla.

 

Puff Stitch

(Yarn over, pull up a loop) 5 times (11 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through 10 loops, yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. Ensure the puff is popping out on the side of the blanket facing away from you.
