    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above). Note: Pattern is written for smaller size with changes for larger size in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

    • GAUGE:
    • 18 stitches = about 4" (10 cm) in Seed stitch.
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
    • When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to make a 4" [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
