In­struc­tions

Where the pat­tern dif­fers be­tween sizes, the small­est size is given first, fol­lowed by the larger size in brack­ets, e.g. 1 (2) sts. The pat­tern is writ­ten in the round, and knit­ted on nee­dles slightly smaller than rec­om­mended for this yarn to cre­ate a closer knit. To use the back­wards loop cast on, hold the nee­dles in your right hand and the work­ing yarn in your left. Pass the work­ing yarn around your thumb from back to front, then slip the right nee­dle tip un­der the loop around your thumb. Pull your thumb out of the loop and then pull the work­ing yarn tight. To make one right, pick up the bar be­tween sts on right and left nee­dles by bring­ing left nee­dle from back to front, and knit into the front of this st. To make one left, pick up the bar be­tween sts on right and left nee­dles by bring­ing left nee­dle from front to back, and knit into the back of this st.
