Notes

So apparently, there is a movie called ‘Tailgate’. Hmmmm.

Also, Because I’m happy!stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

Love my first pair very much. However, I’m still fine tuning fit, so some mods on these:

  • 10 rows of twisted ribbing

  • extend heel by 6 rows

  • 47 rows decreases

  • still no arches on the insteps

  • 48 rows straight, 1/4 of a row to move BOR to side

  • toes following FLK logic, knit from back to front 1-9-8-9-1

  • 3-needle BO
