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



Divide each ball/skein into 3 balls.

When changing yarns, leave 9" [23 cm] tails for fringe.



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.


INSTRUCTIONS

Change to 3 strands of I and begin working color pattern in Garter stitch (knit every row).

Repeat color pattern Rows 1-13 three more times.
