PLEASE KNIT A SWATCH BEFORE THE FIRST MEET-UP (if you need help picking a size to knit, this will enable Jody to best assist you!)

Note- You should always knit your swatch the same way that the pattern is knit—in this case, in the round. Block your swatch as you will your finished garment and allow it to dry fully before measuring.
