Never fails bitterly cold day with harsh wind, shoulder bag keeps slipping and packages to carry -- space between sleeve and glove keeps stretching and wrists are oh-so cold these wrist warmers will make the difference -- brilliant

Staggered mesh pattern in the round seems to be missing an instruction in Rnd 1. What is the final stitch?

I am confused by just one instruction: INSTRUCTIONS With larger straight needles, CO 40 sts. 36 sts Do I cast on 40 stitches or 36 stitches?? Thanks! Naomi

I am wondering if the cast is 40 for straight needles and 36 for round. The 40 would allow for seaming sides together? I don't know- it's just a wild guess.

fisr number is for straight needles, 2nd number is for working in the round.

so...where is it???

There is a link next to the picture, and under the description that says "click here for knitting pattern" - this takes you to the Caron website for the pattern. Hope that helps!

Sorry about the previous comment - apparently the pattern is not on the site.
