1. This pattern is written to be worked in the round on a short circular needle therefore, every row of the chart should be read from right to left.
Substituting locking stitch markers for a cable needle makes small cables much easier to work. They don’t tend to fall out of your work and you can lock them if you needed. Simply use one for each of the stitches to be moved.
This pattern is easier to work if stitch markers are placed between each repeat of the Entangling Vines Pattern.
Pattern includes both charts and written instructions.
- Stretchy cast-on and cast-off
- Knitting in the round
- Reading charts
- Lace stitches
