Definition. The orbifold Euler characteristic is V − E + F , where each vertex and edge is given weight 1/k, where k is the order of symmetry which preserves it. It is important to keep in mind the distinction between the topological Euler characteristic and the orbifold Euler characteristic. For instance, consider the billiard table orbifold, which is just a rectangle. In the orbifold Euler characteristic, the four corners each count 1/4, the four edges count −1/2, and the face counts 1, for a total of 0.

One end of the work is near the tip of the needle and has the yarn attached. This is the working end. Bend the working end around to the other end of your work, and begin to knit those stitches onto the working end, but do not slip them off the other end of the needle as you normally would. When you have knitted all 90 stitches in this way, the needle loops the work twice. 33 Figure 12: A Mobius band. Carry on knitting in the same direction, slipping stitches off the needle when you knit them, as normal.

When you use these flashcards, you should make sure that you can not only remember the correct notation and name, but also that you can analyze the pattern quickly, locating the distinguishing features. This is important because the patterns you will see in the real world won’t be precisely these ones. Another hint is to keep your eyes open for symmetrical patterns in the world around you. When you see a pattern, copy it onto a flashcard, even if you cannot analyze it immediately. When you have determined the correct analysis, write it on the back and add it to your deck.
