GAUGE:
1 Square = about 7 x 7 in. (18 x 18 cm) EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO THIS PROJECT. 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:
1. Refer to each Square for peg configuration.
2. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.
3. Squares are knit on only one side of the loom.

Loom is configured into a rectangle to make it easier to hold.
4. Small pegs are only used to hold loom together.

Do not knit onto small pegs.

Connect pieces to form a rectangle as follows: 36-hole piece > 6-hole piece > U-shaped piece > 6-hole piece > 36-hole piece > U-shaped piece.
