It’s essential to work to the stated tension. If necessary, change the needle size to give the correct tension. Figures in brackets () refer to larger sizes (see measurements chart). Where one set of figures is given this applies to all sizes. If a zero is given, you do not need to work these instructions. Circle the size you wish to make before you start. Yarn quantities are based on average requirements when specified tension and yarn is used. Different wool may be used, but ensure tension of replacement yarn matches that stated in the pattern.
