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 first stitch. And when working in the round, be sure to work your first stitch in the same stitch as join.
  • For SOME round you will turn other rounds you will not! Pay CLOSE attention.
  • All images shown are taking to show the RIGHT SIDE of your work.
