Pattern Summary: Instructions include variations for use with 4 or 5 DPN’s, or two circular needles. Complete instructions are included for both top down and toe-up.

Pattern Section: This pattern is in the ‘Four-stitch Patterns’ section since the cuff pattern has a four stitch repeat.
“the four-stitch patterns more closely related to K1, P1 than K2, P2. Some of the patterns have the main design consuming three stitches separated by a lone purl…”

Notes on gauge:
As with all of the patterns in this book, with the aid of an included chart the pattern can be adjusted to your gauge, and desired finished measurements.

Heel and Toe variations:
The pattern includes explicit instructions for both a “Heel Flap” style heel in either ‘Eye-of-partridge with 3 stitch garter edge“ or “stockinette stitch with 3 stitch garter edge.” The knitter is also referred to instructions for a “short-row heel” in the toe-up section of the pattern.
