Notes

Love this pattern - one square finished. For information, you need to kind of ‘pop’ through the bobbles a couple of rows after you knit them.

Will take a lot more yarn in this DB cotton. 8 in fact.

I wish I had taken heed of the Raveler who said to knit the front in one piece - but hey ho! The sewing up was pretty tricky; I supposed not helped by choice of yarn.

The Debbie Bliss Cotton DK looks nice and crisp, and has lovely stitch definition, but is murder to tangle near the end of the ball. One ball I lost the plot and had to cut off, it got so bad, and I was so mad! Better if you work from the centre of the ball, but still take care with it.

Finished off with heart shaped mother of pearl buttons.
