On the purl side

Purl the number of stitches given on the chart for the MC. To work the first stitch in the CC, insert the RH needle into the first CC stitch, give a slight tug on the MC, and bring it to the left over the CC strand. Keeping a little tension on the MC, give a slight tug on the CC, and bring it up from under MC to purl the next stitch (see Figure 13-9). You've caught the MC with the CC to prevent a hole where they meet. Over time, particularly if you're working with wool, the knit fabric will rub against itself and seal the hole permanently as small fibers from each strand of yarn tangle with their neighbors. Continue purling in the CC to the end of the row. Continue to work the chart through Row 12.

¡»NG/ Intarsia doesn't work in circular knitting. After the first round, you'll find that all the ends you need to knit in the second round are on the opposite side of the motifs you're working. (Don't be tempted to pull them back across — the floats would be far too large!)
