PANEL (make 12; 6 in red and 6 in green)
Joining the Panels
With WS of two panels facing each other, place the long edges so the sts are evenly lined up. Join Cream Gold in center sc of the 3-sc group (corner st) using both inside loops (back loop of the front panel and front loop of the back panel) of adjacent sts. Sc across, using the inside loops, to the next corner st. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Join all 12 panels, but do NOT join the first to the 12th.
Once all the panels have been joined and with RS facing, join Cream Gold in the 3rd st of any corner 3-sc group (the st after the corner st), sc in this st, *sc in each st around to the next corner st, 3 sc in corner st, repeat from * around, join with sl st to first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
