but sometimes you can see their little houses with pointed roofs, each one of a different color.

inside)… or you can customize them with the colors and size of your choice.

HOW TO MAKE THE ROOF BORDER (SAME FOR ALL 4 HOUSES):

To make the roof border, sc in every st where the house color and the roof color meet. You will
have a new round of sc. Continue in this manner:
Sl st., ch 2, IN THE SAME STITCH, proceed as if you will make a double crochet, but DO NOT
COMPLETE the stitch. Instead, leave 2 loops unworked in the hook and repeat the process.
Continue making unfinished double crochets until you have 4 loops in the hook. Now, wrap the
yarn around the hook one more time and pull through the four loops. Ch 1, sl st in the same st
you have been working. Sl st in the 2 next st and repeat until you have completed all the row.
