Pattern:
Excepting the first and last stripe made of 2 rows, the zig-zag stripes (I see heart shapes) are obtained by working 3 rows in same color. 


The color change: work the last sc of the row till half, having two loops on hook, join other color yarn with a sl st and pull through the 2 loops on hook. 

Cut the yarn not in use after each color change. 

Row 1: Work 136 fsc, ch1, turn.

Row 2: (1hdc, 1dc) into first st, *sk 2sts, work (1sc, 1hdc, 1dc) into next st *, repeat from * to * across till last 3 sts, skip the next 2 sts, 1 sc into last st. ch1, turn.

Row 3: (1hdc, 1dc) into first st, *sk next (1dc, 1hdc) and work (1sc, 1hdc, 1dc) into next sc*, repeat from * to * across, sk last (1dc and 1hdc), work 1sc into the turning ch1.

Rows 4 - 12: Repeat rows 2-3, always alternating the colors after 3 rows. 

Row 13: 1 sc into each stitch across. (136 sc)

Cut yarn. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.
If you prefer, add fringes.
