additional yarn suggestion…
Feb. 2013- I have made a minor change to pattern, please check new download.
Decrease back to 80 sts. before crown decrease.
Just makes it easier to decrease for the crown, no extra stitches to knit at the end of the round.
note in the decrease section where it says k3,k2tog around-
You are meant to repeat the ENTIRE instruction around--(k3,k2tog)around and so forth for the rest of decreases.
