How to Make

Tension

11 sts and 11 rnds to 10 cm (4 in) over rnds of dc using 6 mm hook or the size required to give the correct tension.

Check your tension – if fewer stitches use thinner hook, if more stitches use thicker hook.
It is essential to work to the stated tension to ensure the correct size of garment.

Notes

The yarn amounts stated are based on average requirements and are therefore approximate. Where only one figure is given this applies to all sizes. Where the figure 0 appears, no sts, times or rows are worked for this size.

After casting off one stitch will remain on the right hand needle which is not included in the instructions that follow.
