Odette is worked from the center out on double pointed needles. Move to the circular when the circumference is too large to fit comfortably on the double pointed needles. After working the Set-Up, place a marker on the stitch indicated, not in between the stitches. You may find it helpful to use a different (color or type) marker for the beginning of the round. The markers at the 25th, 49th, and 73rd stitches are located in the center of the 8 yarn overs that create the corners of the blanket.
