Pattern Notes:

  1. This pattern is written in rows and the ends are sewn together at the end
  2. The texture portion slightly leans when you are working it, that’s normal. It will even out once the ends are sewn together.

  4. I highly recommend counting the stitches in each row until you get used to the stitch placement.
