NOTES:
Because of the nature of working with Speed Stix, achieving an exact gauge is not necessary for this project.

Due to the nature of the fabric, gauge may vary throughout the knitting.



Editor's Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut.

If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.
