    Hobbies Fair Isle Snowflake Ornament - Easy



    GAUGE:
    EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
    STITCH EXPLANATION:













    M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop.
    NOTES:
    Work chart from right to left on RS rows, from left to right on WS rows. Carry color not in use across WS of work.
