Notes

Cast on without doing a gauge swatch.

3/4: Blocking! I’ll have to sew it up when it is dry.

Instead of using a whipstitch to sew it up at the end, I sewed it like a horizontal seam. I can’t remember what to call it, but like mattress stitch or grafting. The last section of reverse stockinette was a little loose. I maybe would have used a smaller needle for it, or just tightened up the bind-off. That side puffs out a little.

Yarn amounts are approximated.
