Other things to note….
• Most of this pattern is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track.
• The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total stitch count for that round.
• * * indicates repeated series of stitches.
• Use invisible decreases for a neater finished product. This is done by using the FLO of the stitches while making the decrease.
• Changing colour – complete the stitch before the colour change by working the last yarn over of the stitch with the new colour.
• Stitches in are worked into one stitch.
• Remember to stuff the product little and often as you work.
