Cast off.

Making Up:

Sew the cast-off stitches to the cast-ons. Make sure not to twist the loop. Lose the loose ends.

Needle/Yarn Size

As with most ODDknit patterns the yarn and needle sizes in the "you will need" section are just a guide. Feel free to improvise with whatever needles and yarn you have lying around - that's half the fun!
