This final panel will be a bit of fresh air after you juggled the yarns and stitch pattern of Panel 4. You’ll just use a single color, and you should be able to learn the stitch pattern quickly enough that you won’t have to look at the pattern each row.
In case you are joining us later, start with the pattern introduction, Panel 1 , Panel 2, Panel 3 and Panel 4. You can also download the entire pattern as a printable pdf.

Fasten off. Weave in ends, except the final tail.
But Wait, There’s More!
I’ve asked you to weave in ends at the end of each panel, because you need to stop and see if they are the same length. You may need to adjust the length of one or more panels to get them to be the same size. You’ll be blocking the panels in the next segment, but for now stop and review your work.
If you see stitching mistakes or other things that need to be fixed, now is the time to do it. Accurate stitching is a main component in tidy finishing.
