Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked back and forth on straight needles. For tidy color changes you will first work a knit row. The next row will have you slip the first stitch purlwise with the yarn in the back. Once these two rows are completed you switch to the pattern stitch for the number of rows indicated in the pattern.  This will repeat every color change.
