Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up.  It uses one chart that is repeated four times.  Each time the chart begins with a purl stitch that serves as either a selvage or as a marker for the two stitches that will be dropped.  As the scarf is bound off, the second and fourth purl stitch is dropped and allowed to unravel.  The scarf is then blocked flat and the top and bottom are sewn down using a whip stitch.
When blocking the scarf, be sure to line up the dropped stitches (front and back) and do your best to line up the eyelets as well.
I used almost the entire skein of each yarn. It might be prudent to buy extra.
