- Chains 1 and 2 do not count as stitches in the pattern.
- The pattern is relatively easy; just pay close attention to the increases and decreases.
- To help you keep track of increase and decrease rows, odd rows have an increase in the 2nd to last st of the row, and even rows (with the exception of Row 2) have an increase in the beginning and a decrease at the end of the row.
- Once you get the rhythm you will understand what I mean.
- Stitch count will be indicated in <> at the end of some rows just to help you keep track of where you are.
- Block your finished piece to set in and open the stitches.
