    Just substitute the red for the 3rd color, for the fabric requirement and for the placements. You will find it an easy fix :D:D:D

    I've never done one personally, but it seems like to get the effect you will need two values of your red for a double Irish chain. Or maybe somebody has done one with only two colors. I'll be watching this thread..
