Pattern Notes: I’ve written out the pattern’s measurements in centimeters for a more accurate gauge and when possible, both centimeters and inches are given. The fabric for the pattern is a little stretchy. You may decide to use needles US6 for less give. In that case, make a swatch and choose a larger size. This pattern is worked seamlessly “in the round.”
