Additional Information

Description

SIZE:

About 38"x39" (96.5 x 99 cm), before folding and seaming

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Lion Brand®:
    • Tweed Stripes, Orchid, 5 balls or color of your choice
    • Circular knitting needle size 10 (6 mm), 29" (73.5 cm) long
    • Stitch markers
    • Large-eyed blunt needle
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors

GAUGE:

14 1/2 sts + 18 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
To print the pattern, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).

K1, p1 Rib (over even number of sts)
Row 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

NOTE:

Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

DIRECTIONS:

Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures 2" (5 cm) from beg.
Change to St st (k on RS, p on WS) and work until piece measures 37" (94 cm) from beg.
Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures 39" (99 cm) from beg.

FINISHING:
