About this pattern:
This pattern has been produced for p/hop, a knitting fundraising programme for Medicins Sans Frontieres. If you enjoy knitting this pattern please donate to this very worthy cause.

Further information:

This pattern has been tested and tech edited.

This pattern uses approximately 100 yards of each colour - slightly more for the main colour.

The pattern recommends casting on and off loosely. I do this by using a larger needle or by holding two dpns together.

The construction instructions are written and the colourwork is charted.

This is written for dpns so if you use another method for knitting in the round then please read through the instructions thoroughly in case you need to organise your stitches differently.

Notions: the pattern calls for 3 stitch markers with 1 being distinctive to mark the start of the round, and a darning needle for weaving in ends.
