I dont understand what the CONTRASTING COLOR means in crochet. I am trying to make a christmas kitchen towel and the instructions confuses me because they want you to use 3 colores but dont specify when and where in the pattern to use what color at what portion of the pattern. It just starts off with telling u to chain then follow the steps to DC'ing but then it says "ROW 6 JOIN CC IN LAST STICH WORKED THE IN ROW 10 IT SAYS JOIN MAIN COLOR(MC) AFTER FASTENING OFF THE WHITE. Omg what the hey is all that mumble jumble? lol.

First it dont tell me what color the main color is in this project, then it dont tell me what Color Contrasting means and what color the is, thirdly, it never mentions a third color at all but in the picture they used red white and green for this christmas towel.
could and would someone please help me understand CONTRASTING COLOR.I want to make this towel but afraid i wontfigure it out.
I am a beginner crocheter.

thanks all.
