Pattern Notes
• I used Cap Sease’s “Chinese waitress cast-on” with a crochet hook, as explained to me by Sarah Hauschka. I used an icord bind-off for tidy matched edges. You may use whatever you like, of course! Cap Sease:
• I’ve included a row of buttonholes parallel to the cast-on edge, and a second button hole at the top. This allows for multiple stylings.
• Always slip the first stitch of each row purlwise with yarn in front for a tidy selvedge. (Indicated in the instructions as S1.)

I included a description of a short-row technique that I pieced together based on others that are similar. My explanation is wordy and has no pictures. You are welcome to use any short-row strategy you like.
