    I’m a bit confused with the kitting instruction for the black centre of the poppy – ‘Simply cast on 16 stitches and cast off 5 stitches with some black yarn and coil into a circle.’ What happens to the 11 uncast off stitches? Do they just get to unravel themselves at an unpredictable rate? Or am I not reading the instructions right. Can anyone enlighten me?
