This design is knitted using large needles and an airy yarn. It is therefore especially important that it is washed and put through spin cycle in a laundry wash bag, and dried flat (preferably on a towel).
Puf, the yarn used, shrinks approximately 10% in the first wash. This shrinkage is calculated into the finished measurements of the pattern.
