Needles & Notions
14 STS & 15 rounds per 4” (10cm) square, knit in the pattern below
Measurements: 6″ Wide x 14″ (13cm x 35cm)
Weight: 10.6oz (300g)
Knit bottom up, however you can wear them either way.
Knit using the rib & cable knit stitches.
Knit in the round with a circular needle.
When knitting in the round you’re always knitting the right side of your work.
I knit mine using HiyaHiya interchangeable needles with 3 1/2” (9cm) tips.
CO loosely, making sure your stitches slide easily. Too tight of a stitch will make these difficult to knit in the round. The first couple of rounds will be a little tight, but it gets easier as you go.
*– * – repeat between * to end of round
BO – bind-off in pattern
C4F – cable4front – Transfer 2 stitches to a cable needle and hold it in the front of your work, knit the next 2 stitches and then knit the 2 stitches off the cable needle
CO – cast-on (long-tail cast-on method)
K – knit stitches (K1 means to knit 1 stitch)
P – purl stitches (P2 means to purl 2 stitches)
PM – place marker
STS – stitches
