SKILLS & NOTES
If you are confused or stuck, there are a lot of great tutorials online for all of these techniques!
– Provisional CO
– Fisherman’s rib: pulling the loop off the ndl while knitting into the st below can feel weird at first & like your work is going to unravel, but don’t worry! It will form a lovely fluffy stitch after a few rows.
