Notes

Because this is a sport weight yarn, I’m still considering this a winter wear knit. I got super bored with my vanilla sock and decided to work on this. Of course, I read the pattern too fast and knit the first four inches incorrectly. :/

And just now, in doing the math, I’m not sure I have enough yarn.

I noted that a few people did yarn overs and then dropped them at the beginning of each round. I haven’t had any trouble with a tight edge. Also, I AM knitting the every first stitch in the short row section using all three yarns. It is definitely making a nicer neater edge. And I did run out of green so more will be on its way on Friday.
