Instructions:

Setup:

With mc, cast on 240 stitches. Use a stretchy cast on such as a long tail or tubular method.

Do not turn, slide stitches to other end of needle to start work at cast on beginning. Pick up cc and wyif, *sl1yo, p; repeat from * to end. 

Making sure not to twist the stitches, join needles for working in the round and attach a stitch marker to mark the round beginning.

Pattern Repeat:

Round 1 (first pass): with mc, *brk, sl1yo: repeat from * to end of round

Round 1 (second pass) with cc, *sl1yo, brp; repeat from * to end of round  

Repeat the 2 rounds for 10" or desired width. End after a mc round. 

Bind off using a stretchy bind off of your choosing. When binding off, treat the sl1yo stitches as 1 stitch and work them together. 

Example of stretchy bind off: 

Knit 2 stitches, slide stitches back to left needle and knit together through the back loop. (one stitch on right needle), knit one, then slide 2 stitches back onto left needle and repeat the process until 1 stitch remains. Break yarn and pull through. 

Weave in ends with tapestry needle and block if needed..
