Here are the rows for day 1:
Supplies: 1 ball Cotton yarn [your choice of color],
Size 6 US needles [or your preferred needle size]
Info for one special stitch used: Skpo = slip one stitch, knit the next stitch, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted one and off the needles
If you haven't done this one before, check here : http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/abbreviations_explained/
NOTE: For the skpo, yes, this results in one less stitch - BUT, you have also done a YO [yarn over], so that compensates and makes the stitch count the same at the end of the row, at 40 stitches.
Directions: To save yourself some possible grief, count your stitches regularly, being sure you do the yo [yarn overs]!
Cast on 40 stitches
