    This looks like a fun pattern and I expect I’ll make. Need to add that I find navigating your website very arduous.

    I made this, but omitted the button bands and cast on with a provisional and attached with kitchener stitches at the end of the pattern–worked great!

    I have the same question as Carole. I understand I am to make one, but not sure of abbreviation “pw” since it’s not in the listed abbreviations. Otherwise, directions seem fairly straightforward.
