Symbols:
* An asterisk is used to mark the beginning of a portion of instructions that will be worked more than once.

() Parentheses are used to set off and clarify a group of stitches that are to be worked all into the same space or stitch and to provide additional information to clarify instructions.

† The dagger identifies a portion of instructions that will be repeated again later in the same round or row.

SPECIAL STITCH: js (jump stitch): Draw up a lp in next st of previous row, below the row you are working - 2 lps now on hook, yo and draw through both lps on hook. Do not work in the current row behind js. This will create the zigzag pattern on dress.
