Additional Notes

  • Pattern is written US terms
  • Read the entire pattern before beginning
  • Ch1 DOES NOT COUNT as a stitch
  • Stitch counts for additional sizes are listed in the parentheses as S (M, L).
  • Use a row counter to ensure proper fit, as the lemon peel stitch is hard to count.
  • Rather than sewing the first and last fdc, follow the instructions under Special Techniques to join the round.

This pattern is not to be duplicated or resold, and not to be reproduced commercially. You may sell finished products on Etsy, at farmers markets, and craft fairs, but please credit Creations By Courtney as the pattern’s author.
