NOTES – Pattern is written in US terms. Read through the pattern, study the charts, and circle the size you’re making prior to starting. After the first 1-5 rows, you will have more shells between the increase stitches (marked by the pink color) as your yoke gets larger. Place a marker at the increase stitches to help identify where to increase.
