INSTRUCTIONS
Note:  When working TuTu Lamé and Merino 5 together, hold TuTu Lamé across front of work, keeping the cut end on right-hand side.  Fold end of TuTu Lamé so 1st and 2nd rectangular openings overlap.  Insert left needle into both openings knitwise, then through the Merino 5 st on the needle.  Finish knitting the st with Merino 5 only.  Repeat, inserting needle in next opening before knitting next stitch.
