  1. I love the look of this pattern and I would like to give it a try, but I’m a little confused. Pattern uses 2 zippy looms, which has a total of 8 pegs and calls for a cast on of 11 stitches. Could you please clarify? Thank you

  2. I love the look of this scarf! But i’m having trouble visualizing the “cdd”. Is there a video for it?

  3. I am working on this right now but am confused with row 7. It says YO, which I did, but then when you shift the loops to other pegs, that doesn’t leave peg 3 empty because you move the YO, but not the original loop. Please advise!

  4. Hi Angela, there is a Stitch Breakdown at the end of the pattern. The stitch breakdown is step-by-step. I have added a chart that may help in seeing how the stitches need to move.
