Notes
This pattern is written for the magic loop method but can be easily adapted to your preferred method of small circumference knitting. Unless indicated otherwise, stitches on both needles are worked the same.

Due to the nature of the elongated stitches, we do not recommend using a cable needle. To work the cross, you will rearrange the stitches before knitting them.
