01Color Chart Key
Border = Stitch Type
Look at the border of the square to signify the stitch used
Brackets = Where to work the stitch
Boxes connected by brackets signify where that stitch is worked into (ie. worked into the same st)
Look at the colors in the square to determine the color of the stitch.
Solid bordered squares with two colors require a half color change. Make the first pull through, completing the previous stitch, with the first color (Red), and next with the second color (Green).
The number above of the box is the stitch number in that round (ie. 10 = stitch #10).

Try stuffing your beach ball with beans to make a hacky sack! I had the most success using a funnel and black beans.
