    • DIRECTIONS:


    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
    • Back and Front are worked separately.
    • Both pieces are worked in intarsia colorwork, following written instructions. When working intarsia, do not carry yarn across WS of work between color changes, use a separate ball for each section of color. Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes.
    • The longer circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needles as if working with straight needles.
    • When ‘0’ reps appears in the instructions, this means that for a specific size, nothing needs rep. Simply continue to the next section of the instructions.
