    Hi. I am a beginner sort of . I have knit sweaters and hats. I am embrassed to admit that I cannot read the first and second rows of the pattern. Can you translate? Also if you want to make it much bigger do you give instructions for that. Thank you.

      Hi Viola, Yeah, those 2 rows can be confusing. The video right under those 2 rows shows you how to knit it. It’s easy to adjust the size, to make it larger just cast-on more stitches. There aren’t any increases or decreases, so make it as wide as you need it. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you!
