GAUGE:
16 stitches by 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) with US #8 (5mm) needles before felting 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:
All rows are worked in stockinette(knit on right side, purl on wrong side.)

To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry.

Remove from dryer and pull into shape.

Insert needles through the felt for storage.

Felt, once made, will not unravel like knitting does, so if necessary, cut holes in the felt for larger needles.
