Additional Notes:
-You will need to hold two strands of the recommended yarn together to obtain the proper gauge.
-Ch 1 at beginning of round does not count as a st.
-After increases end, always start new rounds in same stitch as join.
-When working the band, the plain sc sts in the final 3 rounds can be worked as center single crochet (the “crochet knit stitch”) to give a knit look to the design.
-See additional pattern notes further down the page for single strand gauge and finished measurements.
