Notes
If you wish to lengthen the body, do so in the plain stockinette section before beginning the charted texture patterns. To add length, add a pair of RS and WS rows for every additional ½” / 1.25 cm desired. Be sure to add length to both the back and front pieces. You might require more yarn if you knit additional length.

Less experienced knitters might be new to two techniques the pattern calls for: the backward loop cast on and mattress stitch. If you’re unfamiliar with these techniques, you can find helpful explanations on sites like Knitty and VeryPink.
