Additional Materials
Double pointed needles size 10.5 [6.5 mm] (set of 5) Circular needle size 11 [8 mm] 40 in.[101.5 cm]
GAUGE:
10 sts + 16 rnds = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k every rnd) on larger needle. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
Throw is worked from the center out, first in rows, then in rnds.

Change to circular needle when necessary to accommodate number of stitches.

Beginning with Rnd 11, the pattern is 1 increase rnd followed by 3 knit rnds.
