NOTES

The Bauble Charms are worked in a con­tin­u­ous spi­ral, with­out clos­ing off each round with a ss. It is a good idea to mark the first st of each round with a stitch marker, mov­ing it up as you work.

Each Bauble and Drinks Clip use up to 2 colours. You can use any colours you like. Change colours on the last yrh of the st be­fore the colour change is in­di­cated.
