Pattern, Knit Flat {Back & Forth}:

CO 13 {S}, 15 {M} or 17 {L} STS

{Note: I make them to where they fit comfortable over the head, so that the cast-on row  starts at the middle point between my neck and shoulder on the left and ends at the middle point between my neck and shoulder on the right}

Row 2: *K1, P1* INC1

Row 3: *K1, P1* K1, INC1

Row 4: *K1, P1* INC1

Follow in pattern until you have reached your desired length. BO in pattern.

{Note: I knitted mine until it reached the tip of my fingers. If you’re knitting this for a little one and they’re going to be trick-or-treating in it, you may want it a little shorter so they’re hands are easily accessible.}

Repeat for the other side.

The front and the back are the same, there isn’t a wrong side.

Lay them on top of each other and sew up the side seams, not the cast-on and bind-off edges. Wear this with the seams in the front and back, so it’s longer in the front and back, not the sides.

Weave in the ends.

No blocking necessary.
