  • Panels are worked bottom-up with front panels slightly longer than back panel. Front panels are made first, then back panel is worked and joined to front panels as last row is worked.
  • The nontraditional filet-stitch pattern is worked over a multiple of 5 stitches and is composed of lacet stitches on the even rows and mesh stitches on the odd rows, both interspersed with solid blocks. The lacet rows dictate whether a block or mesh stitch will be worked on the following row: where a block is worked on a lacet row, a block will then be worked into that block when working the mesh row; where there is a lacet on the even row, a mesh stitch will be worked on the odd row.
  • Bobble V-stitches are worked on the wrong side (WS) rows but will “pop” on the right side (RS).
  • When told to work in V-stitches, work in chain-2 space unless otherwise stated.
