Pattern Notes

The pattern recommends a long tail cast on because it will stretch. If you choose to substitute another method, be sure to choose one which is stretchy.

The last st of Rnd 2 in the lace pattern is not worked, but slipped forward to be part of the first k3tog in that rnd. The final yo at the end of the rnd (Rnd 3) will keep the start of rnd in the same spot.
