  • instructions written for magic loop but dpns can be used as well
  • three sizes: small (60 sts), medium (66 sts) and large (72 sts)
  • instructions for working lateral (a.k.a. Vikkel) braids
  • strong heel structure
  • charts but no written instructions for stranded colourwork and textured ribbing patterns
  • proof read by Helena Kahan
