Random pattern notes:

I knit very tight, but in this project size doesn’t matter, so I didn’t bother with gauge.

Yardage is unspecified because I wasn’t originally thinking of publishing the charts, so I didn’t keep track.

This is my first pattern, so if you have any trouble with it at all, or the instructions are unclear, please let me know asap so I can correct it!

The PDF, as it stands, doesn’t teach how to double knit - it’s just the chart. I’ll have a new and more thorough PDF uploaded by the end of the month, hopefully, with instructions for beginners and a handy link to the Knitting Help site where many illuminating videos await.
In the mean time, please note that when you cast on, it makes it much simpler if your colours alternate all the way along. Otherwise it’ll be complicated sorting them out on the second row, as Raveler debideck has pointed out.

Dear friends, acquaintances, and untested nemeses:
please do feel free to use these charts however you wish!

I am on Ravelry FAR less than a decent person would be, but am sadly not a decent person. I occasionally get messages requesting to use this pattern… several months after the fact.

Given my terrible track record in the response category, please feel free to use and just drop me a line to let me know - purely for the sake of my curiosity, not that it’s necessary - or taunt or threaten me in some way if you wish to be my Official Nemesis (applications are always being accepted!)

Many thanks, and happy knitting! (Or, to my potential Arch Enemies out there, “Drat you dastardly fiends! A thousand curses fall upon thy heads!” ::shakes fist::)
