Section Repeats by Weight:
It’s recommended to use the “Rule of Fifth’s”, where you use:
Section 1 + 2: 1/5th of your yarn
Section 3 Straight: 3/5th of your yarn
Section 4 Decrease: 1/5th of your yarn
*This does require you to weigh your ball of yarn prior to starting and frequently during knitting your repeats in each section.
