  1. Body is worked in one piece beg at neck.
  2. Body is worked in the round to leg openings then back and underbody are worked separately back and forth in rows. When leg openings are complete, underbody and back are rejoined and worked in the round to the back flap. Back flap is worked back and forth in rows.
  3. When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using - this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.
  4. Hood is worked separately, back and forth in rows, and sewn to Costume. Short rows are used to shape Hood. Short rows are rows that are worked over a portion of the sts in a row, leaving the remaining sts unworked. To work short rows, the pattern instructions will tell you to ‘turn’ before you reach the end of the row.
