Pattern Instructions

  1. Instructions

    Make a slip knot and attach it to a size 50 needle. Wrap your yarn around the needle and hold the tail of the yarn from the slip knot. Turn the needle and wrap your yarn around the needle. I turn it about a third of the way each time. If you don’t have a big needle you can use a toilet paper roll or a paper towel roll.
