IMPORTANT NOTE: 

Unless yarn specified is used, SAPROTEX cannot accept responsibility for the finished work.

Owing to printing restrictions the colour reproduction is matched as closely to the yarn as possible.

The instructions are given for the smallest size, with the larger sizes in brackets; where only one figure is given, it applies to all sizes.

Save time, take time, check tension. For best results it is essential to obtain the correct tension. If there are too few stitches on test swatch, use (a) thinner (hook) needles; if there are too many stitches, use (a) thicker (hook) needles.
