How I changed colors in round 13

  1. In the sc before fptr draw up CA when finishing the st, fptr with CA.
  2. Before finishing the fptr draw up CC when finishing the st.
  3. Work over CA with CC.
  4. Make sure the 'old' color is OVER the new color before drawing color up to finish stitch to prevent gaping.
