The charted pattern is worked in St st in the round. Each square represents one stitch and each row in the chart represents one round or row of knitting. When changing colors, strand the unused yarn loosely on the back of the work, making sure the tension remains even. To avoid long floats, twist the working yarns around each other after every 2 to 3 stitches. The chart has a repeat of 24 stitches worked over 68 rnds. Extra stitches are shown at the beginning and end of the rows in the chart so you can see how to align the pattern.
Repeat = 24 sts
