Upon purchase of this pattern, select Hakusa by KM. Enjoy!

Use bamboo or timber/wood needles to work the stainless steel threads.
Cast on using a size or two larger needle to the cast on edge and keep your stitches firm. Work the cast on slowly and consider using chain stitch cast on to keep the edge structure (I personally find the continental cast on much less consistent).
