SUPPLIES

NOTES

  • Please read through the entire pattern before you start.
  • Sizing: approx. 6″ in length x 5″ wide.
  • Gauge: Not essential as long as you keep your tension consistent.
  • Tip: Try to use the same weight yarn for the pizza base, sauce and cheese so that they all match up. Particularly with Red Heart yarns, the Soft yarn is a lighter worsted weight than the Super Saver, therefore when mixing these two worsted weight yarns, your pizza pieces may not turn out to be the same size.

ABBREVIATIONS

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sc2tog = single crochet two together
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)
