Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Could you provide what Kfb means. Knit,front and back of stitch? Dorothy

After row 10, starting foot, it says pm and join to work in rnd. Where do you pm? it can't be at the beginning of the round can it?

Ive just got to that stage and damned if I can make it out. Like you, where do you place marker, and I cant figure out how to "join to work in rnd"

"Rep Rows 3-4 four (eight) more times" would be clearer if it said repeat rows 3 and 4 four more times (total of 8 rows).

Hey there, Nita! Thanks for your suggestion. Edits have been made accordingly to the pattern for clarity. Happy knitting!
