Special Technique

Adjustable-Ring Method – Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Hold ring firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring, working over both strands (the tail and ring). After first round of stitches are worked, pull gently, but securely on tail to tighten ring.

  2. Why is the 2nd part of this, at the Lavender Chair be printed?

    1. I meant, why can’t it be printed

      1. Hi Becky,

        Thank you for visiting. It is not mandatory for every designer to have Print Friendly on their site – that it totally up to the designer. You can always bookmark the Introduction page so you will have it when you are ready. Each part of the blanket will remain free. This link is also a helpful guide when printing. https://www.facebook.com/groups/403908719776012/search/?query=Print%20Friendly

        I hope this helps.

        Have a great day!
        Mistie
