PAT­TERN NOTES

Move stitch mark­ers up with each round to mark side edges of Toe and side edges of Heel. En­sure that there are an equal num­ber of stitches be­tween mark­ers so as not to bias. Toe, Foot and Heel are worked in un­joined rounds. Do not join rounds and do not chain 1 at begin­ning of rounds un­less oth­er­wise stated. To mea­sure the to­tal length of your foot, mea­sure from the back of your heel to the tip of your long­est toe. Chain-1 and chain-2 at begin­ning of round do not count as first stitch un­less oth­er­wise stated. Join with slip stitch un­less oth­er­wise stated.
