Yarn: Cascade Yarns Pacific (40% Superwash Merino Wool, 60% Acrylic; 213 yards [195 meters]/100 grams); #500 Duo Tone - one skein, and #505 Caribbean blue - one skein

Needles: One 16" circular needle in size 8, one set double-pointed needles (dpns), also in size 8, cable needle (cn) or extra dpn

Notions: Stitch marker, tapestry needle

Gauge: 18 stitches = 4 inches

Cast on 96 stitches, place marker, join in round

Knit in k1, p1 ribbing for 1 inch

Now, before we begin the main pattern, which is adapted to the round from the Marrowbone Pattern from page 204 of Barbara G. Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, let's do a little notation note:

fc (front cross): slide 3 stitches to cn and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cn

fc2 (front cross 2): slide 2 stitches to cn and hold in front, k2, then k2 from cn

fc1 (front cross 1): slide 1 stitch to cn and hold in front, k1, then k1 from cn
Whew! Now that that's done, let's get started.
Rows 1 & 3: knit

Row 2: * k2, p6, k4; rep from *

Row 4: * p6, k6 *

Row 5: * p6, fc *

Row 12: * k4, p6, k2 *

Repeat rows 1 - 12 twice through, and then repeat rows 1 - 6 again. Now it's time to change colors (or not, if you're not out of yarn like I am, or you didn't want to buy two balls, or you think color changes are tacky!) and then knit rows 7 - 12 one more time before beginning the decrease.

Decrease row 1: knit
