NOTES
(These are notes about the pattern, and the pattern itself starts below!)

HAND DYED YARN
If you’re using hand dyed yarn, like our Posy and Pocket Posy, you may want to re-fix the dye before you begin in order to prevent the colors from bleeding when you wash the finished piece. For tips on how, visit our Re-Fixing Dye Tutorial.

SLIP STITCHES
Slip all slipped stitches purlwise.

STITCH MULTIPLE
This pattern works over an odd multiple of 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!

BRIOCHE ABBREVIATIONS
YOS yarn over slip: Bring yarn forward, slip 1 purlwise, bring yarn over right needle.

bk2tog (brioche knit 2 together): Knit the next stitch together with its paired yarn over.

bp2tog (brioche purl 2 together): Purl the next stitch together with its paired yarn over.
