( ) – work enclosed instructions as many times as specified by the number immediately following or contains explanatory remarks.

GAUGE
Correct gauge is essential for proper size. Hook sizes given in instructions are merely guides and should never be used without first making a sample swatch in the stitch, yarn or thread, and hook specified. Then measure it, counting your stitches and rows carefully. If your swatch
is smaller than specified, try again with a larger size hook; if larger, try again with a smaller size. Keep trying until you find the size that will give you the specified gauge. DO NOT HESITATE TO CHANGE HOOK SIZE TO OBTAIN CORRECT GAUGE.

MARKERS
Markers are used to help distinguish the beginning of each round being worked. Place a 2” scrap piece of yarn before the first stitch of each round, moving marker after each round is complete.

DECREASE
Pull up a loop in next 2 sts, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook (counts as one sc).

SATIN STITCH
Satin Stitch is a series of straight stitches worked side by side so they touch but do not overlap. Come up at odd numbers and go down at even numbers (Fig. 1).
Fig. 1
 


STRAIGHT STITCH
Straight Stitch is just what the name implies, a single, straight stitch. Come up at 1 and go down at 2 (Fig. 2).
