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.
