Pattern Notes
A circular needle is used to accom­modate large number of stitches; do not join.
When working a Cl-R, be sure not to reknit the stitches from the LH needle after you have passed the
4th stitch over them. Just slip them back to the RH needle.
Row gauge changes dramatically after the fabric is blocked.
