Notes:

  • Not reversible.
  • Knit bottom up, however you can wear them either way.
  • Knit using the rib & stockinette stitch.
  • I knit mine using HiyaHiya interchangeable needles with 3 1/2” {9cm} tips.
  • When knitting in the round you’re always knitting the right side of your work.
  • 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.
  • The XS, S and M need to be knitted in the round using the magic loop method, with 24″ {61cm}, or larger, cables or DPNs.
  • The L and XL can be knitted in the round with 16″ {40cm} cables.
