Repeat steps 4 to 7 with every new row to get an even color change. Of course you can use any joining method you prefer, but I find this method to be very neat and doesn’t cause that much more work. If you want to replicate these stripes, here is the scheme of color changes:
Neutral color: row 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, 21, 25, 29, 40, 41
Blue color: row 3, 7, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 26, 27, 28, 34, 35
Pink color : row 5, 9, 10, 15, 16, 22, 23, 24, 30, 31, 32, 33, 36, 37, 38, 39
After you’ve done 41 rows of whatever color scheme you fancy, you need to make two bands for the drawstring part.
Chain 50 + 2. Make 50 DC starting in third chain from hook. Crochet 4 rows in a color you like. I did it in pink and placed it onto the second wide pink stripe from the top. Use a backstitch to sew the top and bottom of the band onto your crochet piece, leaving the sides open. Make sure it is sturdy so it can’t come loose later on.
Block your piece to measurements if necessary.
