· To determine the correct size of your foundation chain, so that it best fits your tablet – you must make as many chains needed as to tightly wrap around your tablet and meet back up with one another.

· You must chain a multiple of 3.

· If you chain does not meet a multiple of 3 you can either add a couple of chains or take a couple of away until you have a multiple of 3.

· Instructions given are based on the size of an I-PAD 2. But you can use the same method for any tablet or phone.

· Pattern written using American terminology.
