Notions: Smooth scrap yarn in similar weight for

Notes: Slip all stitches purlwise with yarn held at back
(WS) of work unless otherwise instructed. This is written
as ‘sl 1 pwise wyib’ for RS rows and ‘sl 1 pwise wyif ’ for
WS rows. The first and last 3 sts of every row are knit for
a garter stitch selvedge – use stitch markers as a reminder
if required. One stitch has been added to the wrap to
make the pattern symmetrical with the ‘extra’ stitch
worked as follows:
RS rows: K3 (garter selvedge), repeat Chart six times, k1
(the added st), k3 (garter selvedge).
WS rows: K3 (garter selvedge), p1, repeat Chart six times,
k3 (garter selvedge)
