Special notes

-It may be helpful to use the tutorial I created for Cables on the Kiss Loom that can be found here: http://www.box.net/shared/un9n0pao8w

-The bind off used in this pattern is done as follows (it is helpful to keep it all fairly loose):

*E-wrap and knit off pegs 1 and 2 *Move loop from peg 2 to peg one and knit off.

*Move loop back to peg 2, which now becomes your new peg 1.

*E-wrap and knit off the next peg, move it to peg 1, knit off, move loop back to it’s original peg.

*Repeat the last step until all pegs have been bound off
