If there is only one number, then it will be the same for all sizes. It is recommended that you circle all calculations for the size you are making before starting the project.

If you are having trouble closing the 7 lps of the Puff St, when pulling up the lps, try to work loosely and pull up the lps even with your work.

Work sc in last sc in BOTH LOOPS. Ch 1, turn. Rep from * until a total of 91 (97, 103) rows have been completed from beg. Remove hook and pull the lp up (or place a Stitch Marker in the loop so that it will not come unraveled. Thread the beg "tail" of yarn into yarn needle and whip stitch the top loops of the last row worked to the unworked lps of the ch in the first row. (Do not twist the neck ribbing.)

Switch to larger hook and begin working in rounds along sides of rows.

Fringe Using the cardboard piece, cut 12" pieces of Luster Sheen and with TWO 12" pieces of Luster Sheen, work fringe in each ch-2 sp of Final Rnd. Trim fringe to even the lengths.

Tip I like to use a plastic videotape cover to make my fringe. Wrap Luster Sheen around the width of the cover and the edge makes a nice recess for placement of your scissor.
