Octagonical Part 1

It has all the information on yarn requirements and the details for the 3 official yarn packs, Harmony, Peace, and Balance, including a colour per round downloadable pdf.
Before you go rushing off to start please have a little read through the helpful hints and tips below.
♥ Take your time, this is a journey, not a race, enjoy every moment of each stitch you create. Remember new skills take time to learn.
♥ Read the pattern carefully, familiarise yourself with the abbreviations, all special stitches are listed at the beginning of the pattern.
♥ Follow the hints, they are there to help you.
♥ Use stitch markers, they are your friend and will keep you on the right path.
♥ Check your stitch count after every repeat, it is essential to the shape of this design and will save having to rip/frog your work.
The only frogs we want are the kind that turns into a Prince!
♥ Use the videos to help you if you need to.
Video tutorials are in US terms.
Those of you familiar with my designs will recognise some of my signature stitches, like the Ruffle Stitch, and Folding Single Crochet.
