sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in café latte and aran. I also used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in dusty blue.
