OK, so let's first figure out which color you started the chain with. Was it the white? Can you tell from the picture which part was the chain you started with...and then, what color was next? Sounds like they're calling white, white, and so you have to figure out if it's green or red that they're calling the CC.

You can usually see what your next color would be if you can see in the picture where the beginning is. If there are several colors, I usually have to read the whole pattern through to figure out where each color goes. Read it over again just to make sure you didn't miss it. I know I've done that before.

Often, at the top of the pattern with all the other info (like hook size) they'll explain which yarns they recommend, and each one will be labeled as to how it's referred to in the pattern. I assume they didn't do that with this pattern.

If you found it online, post the URL here and someone will look at it for you to see if they can figure it out.

Best of luck with your towel!
