NOTES

SLIP STITCHES
Slip all slipped stitches purlwise, unless the pattern indicates otherwise.

STITCH MULTIPLE
This pattern works over a multiple of 4 + 1 stitches.

TURN + SLIDE
When you work this Stitch Pattern, you either “turn” or “slide” the work at the end of each row.

“Turn work” means to do what you would normally do when knitting rows with circular needles: Transfer the needle from your left hand into your right hand and the needle from your right hand into your left, flipping the work around so the opposite side is facing you.

“Slide work” means to keep the same side of the work facing you and to push all the stitches to the right end of the circular needles. Without turning the work, start the new row as you normally would.

You will know that you’re doing this right if the yarn you need to complete the next row is right there waiting for you!
