This is a knitting pattern suitable for experienced knitters, and involves the following techniques:

  • knitting and purling
  • working flat and in the round
  • decreases: k 2 tog, p 2 tog, p 3 tog, SSK
  • increases: M 1, M 1 purlwise
  • slip 1
  • casting on and casting off. (I use the crochet cast on and pinhole cast on. Photo instructions for the pinhole cast on are included with the pattern. I’ve also posted video demonstrations of these techniques:
