Farro is worked from the top down, center out, increasing every 8th row through the charts. Each segment of the chart is worked 8 times per row. Some charts show RS and WS rows and some charts show RS rows only. On charts that show RS rows only, work WS rows in established pattern, knitting the knit stitches and purling the purl stitches and yarn overs as they appear.

Pattern Update:

Current version: mmd042219

This pattern was originally published by Twist Collective. The last Twist Collective version was 090817.

This pattern has gone through superficial changes to update the appearance, and the file has been reviewed by a tech editor to ensure no necessary information was omitted. If you find an issue, please feel free to contact me.

If you purchased the pattern through Twist Collective, I may not be able to verify your order and you may not receive errata or other updates. Patterns bought through Ravelry or transferred to your Ravelry library, should be configured to receive updates, though there may be some technical issues while the process is refined. I will do my best to assist you if any issues arise.
