This pattern is so lovely. Thanks so much for posting it for us to use. Right now I am attempting to follow your pattern. I figured out that "FO" must mean "flip over", but I cannot figure out what "IN" means. At first I thought you meant "Increase", but that doesn't make sense to me in this context. Can you explain what you meant? Also, did you mean for round 1 to be joined at the end?

Thanks in advance for the assistance and the inspiring pattern.

Sher-E: I corrected the pattern to include the abbreviation of FO, which means to Fasten off the yarn. IN is just in, meaning IN the next space work the pattern directions. I capitalized it hoping to make it easier to see that I mean in the next sp or next st. Sorry about that.

Like the pattern! You didn't say how much green you used! Do you know how much?

Dragonflymomof2 said...

No I did not keep track of the amount of yarn I used. I usually don't. I can tell you it was not very much at all, and I know that doesn't help much.
