Notes

CO all 253 sts on a flight from Shanghai to Seoul and knit most of the body on the flight from Honolulu to Seoul. This was a fun and easy pattern to knit but quite a boring yarn to work with (splitty, slippery and already looks worn-out). On the plus-side, the yarn feels wonderful on your skin - but I won’t be using it again… I might knit this pattern again though :-)
Using removable stitch-markers on the places where I last wrapped-and-turned (on both ends) made life A LOT easier (I couldn’t have knit this without them).
CO with Jeni’s magically stretchy cast-on and BO with lace bind-off. Knit with KnitPicks harmony wood cables.
