Pattern Notes

  • Pattern is written in S/M. Changes for the L/XL are in parentheses, please take note.
  • Ch1 does not equal a stitch. Ch3 equals a st/dc.
  • Mark Row 2 as your RS row.
  • When working on Row 24, you will be working in the sides of the stitches (side posts). If you don’t have 25 sc at the end of the row, make it so that you do have that number. You may either need to increase a st or decrease a st so that you do get 25 sc.
  • Stitch count will be indicated in < > at the end of the rows.
