Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up.
Note that this yarn grows significantly on blocking because of the combination of the lace stitch pattern and the silk content. If you are substituting yarns make sure you wet block your swatch as you may find that other yarns do not grow as much as the Fyberspates yarn.
