VIDEO TUTORIAL: Joining the ears!

Additional notes: When making the stripes in this pattern, the instructions will tell you to “change to Color A or B” depending on where you are. For example, if the pattern says:

“Sc 36, change to Color B, sc 5. (42)”

You’ll sc 36, change your color in the next stitch (37th stitch), then sc 5. You will end up with 37 sc of Color A (because the stitch where you change colors still appears as Color A) and 5 sc of Color B.

Hopefully this clears things up for anyone who may have been having trouble with their stitch counts in certain rounds. If you’re still having issues, feel free to email me!
