NOTES

HAND DYED YARN

If you’re using hand dyed yarn, like our Posy and Pocket Posy, you may want to re-fix the dye before you begin in order to prevent the colors from bleeding when you wash the finished piece. For tips on how, visit our Re-Fixing Dye Tutorial.

SLIP STITCHES

Slip stitches purlwise with yarn in back (wyib) unless directed otherwise.

LIFTED INCREASE

RLI (Right Lifted Increase): Lift right leg of stitch below next stitch on left needle onto left needle and knit it. 1 stitch increased

LLI (Left Lifted Increase): Lift left leg of stitch 2 rows below stitch on right needle onto left needle and knit it through the back loop. 1 stitch increased

For more information on these techniques, please visit our Lifted Increase Tutorial.

M1R (Make 1 Right): Pick up bar between last stitch you knit and the one you’re about to knit with left needle, bringing needle from front to back and knit into the front of stitch.
