December Mid Month KAL

Size 4.5 mm (U.S. 7) knitting needles

Instructions:
Cast on 41 stitches.

K4 in the beginning and end of each row signifies the border stitches.
Note: Knit wise means just that, “as if to knit”. P2sso means :
p2sso = pass two slipped stitches over. This explanation goes along with sl 2 knit wise, K1 then p2sso. SSK means sl 1 sl 1, knit 2tog. You can also check this at knittinghelp.com.

Slip two stitches together as if to knit, knit one, pass the two over the one you knit. It’s a double decrease
