  • Turning chain DOES count as first stitch unless stated otherwise within the pattern.
  • Pattern is worked from the bottom up with trim added at the end.
  • When joining in the round, join to first stitch with a slip stitch.
  • Garment has 3-5" of positive ease.
  • For more length, add rows before starting panels.
  • When using hand-dyed yarn, alternate 2-3 skeins every 1-2 rows.
  • Use a stitch marker to help keep track of row numbers.
  • Pattern is written in smallest size with additional sizes in parentheses as follows: XS (S, M, L, XL) (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X). Final stitch count for all sizes is in parentheses at the end of each row/round. If only one stitch count is given, it is for all sizes.
