them together to work the yoke. When working the yoke,
different-coloured stitch markers help keep the decreases
correct - these are set out in the written instructions and
shown on the charts with coloured lines, labelled as A, B,
C, etc. All sizes require 4 each of markers labelled A, B
and C and one unique marker for beg of round. You will

Sizes 1 & 2: 3 markers labelled D
Sizes 3 & 4: 4 markers labelled D and 3 markers labelled E

markers labelled F.
