Starting with the 2 stripes to the left join them up the post using Empire by making a chain in the bottom post (make sure you go through both stripes), then 3 double crochet (UK crochet terminology) in the same post, make 3 double crochet in each post going up the side of the stripes until you reach the top.  Finish off and weave in ends.

Join the next stripe which will be a Storm Blue stripe (keeping the right sides facing you and row 1 at the bottom) to the side of the Duck Egg stripe and continue joining each stripe to all stripes have been joined together.
