PATTERN NOTES:

  • •Ottoman is worked in the round. (DO NOT turn after each round, keep working with RS facing toward you)
  • •Yarn is held double. I used both ends of the skein when working the sample. Colors are changed as you run out of each shade. For the sample, new colors were joined at Rows 26, 37, and 44.
  • •Gauge is not crucial but will affect the size and yardage amount used.
  • •Pattern includes a schematic for sewing inner bag and instructions for making the i-cord.
