Additional Materials
Circular knitting needle size 9 (5.5 mm), 36 in. (91.5 cm) long Puffy fabric paint
GAUGE:
12 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern st. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Make 1 Loop
1.

Knit next st without removing it from left needle.


2.

Bring the yarn from the back, between the needles, to the front and wrap it around your thumb.

Take the yarn to the back again, between the needles.

You should now have a loop of yarn wrapped around your thumb.
3.

Knit into the same st as in step #1 and remove it from the left needle.
4.

With tip of left needle, lift the 2nd st on the right needle over the first st and off the needle.

NOTES:
Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts.

Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
