    This is a very therapeutic pattern to do as it just appears as I knit. I love how the first few knit rows give the rainbow stability then the stocking stitch stripes and decreases make it soo real.
    A very easy follow pattern and a very realistic finish.

    Hi, you do this so it gives a bit of stability to the edge when you sew it. This is optional and do it how you would like.
