Special Notes:

  • Each sampled used exactly 450 yds/ 411 m of DK weight yarn. Recommended materials includes a 10% buffer to prevent yarn chicken situations.
  • BOWT is simply a wrapped stitch that slips over the next wrapped stitch to bind off 1 stitch. The wraps remain in place
    adding much needed structure to the drapey cellulose yarn and extra firmness to the structured animal-fiber yarn.
