INSTRUCTIONS

Start by knitting a swatch so ypu can master the .yam-over technique. Tip: After the first row; the second stitch of your purl-2-together stitches will be the mapped yam.

Using big needles (we used size 19) and the yarns listed, hold together a strand of each yarn and cast on 10 stitches. Kitit ever) row the same: slip the first stitch as if to knit, *wrap the yarn all the way around the needle so you're ready to purl (yarn in front and encird-ing the needle), then purl 2 stitches together; repeat from * to the last stitch, and purl chat stitch. Continue to length desired (we went to 84M).
