PATTERN NOTES

Follow charted instructions for the colourwork, reading chart from right to left and working in the round. Make the same yarn the "top" yarn when stranding - in our sample, the background yarn has been worked as the "top" yarn - and strand the yarns loosely enough so that the fabric can move when worn. There are no floats more than three stitches in width, so there is no need to tack floats down.
