Front Loop: The picture below shows the front loop, where you should be placing your SC for row 2. The first picture shows the top of the stitch (the V shape) where you normally would crochet into. The second picture shows your work from the side and the loop that you should work into. The third picture shows how your work should look on the opposite side once this row is complete.

Pattern:

Starting with right side facing you and working in high temp color. Each color change can be carried up the side of the blanket. No need to cut yarn and weave in extra ends! The floats of yarn you carry up the sides can be hidden by the border when your blanket is done.
