Notes:

  • Turning chain does NOT count as your first stitch (unless otherwise specified). So, when working flat, be sure to work your first stitch in the very frist stitch. And when working in the round, be sure to work your first stitch in the same stitch as join.
  • When working round 8 of this pattern, slip stitch in the first 7 stitches with previous row color, then change color to move onto next round.
  • When working round 8 the positioning of the BPSC stitches will be centered in the 7Dc shell created in the previous round.
