Rounds 42, 44: Repeat round 1

Round 46: BO tightly in all knit STS

Knitting Notes:

Technically this pattern only has 2 different rows, so don’t be scared it’s a pretty easy pattern.

To make it larger or smaller CO in multiples of 4.

I CO tightly using the long tail CO method.

I knit this a little on the tight side, I usually knit a little on the loose side.

I slipped the 2 stitches at once to create a tighter stitch.

A mistake I frequently made was knitting 2 together when I was supposed to be slipping 2 STS. :(

This is an unforgiving stitch. When you make a mistake, it’s noticeable and the only way to fix it is to tink back or frog. :( Don’t despair! It’s sooo pretty when it’s finished! It’s worth it! :)
