Additional Materials

GAUGE:
17 1/2 stitches + 24 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern. 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:
Seed stitch (multiple of 2 stitches + 1) Row 1 (right side): *Knit 1, purl 1; repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.

Row 2: Knit the purl stitches and purl the knit stitches.

Repeat Row 2 for Seed stitch.

NOTES:
Wall hanging is worked in one piece, back and forth in rows on a circular needle.

A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.

Dots are embroidered onto finished wall hanging.

To ensure that embroidered strands are very securely fastened to wall hanging, on wrong side of project sew closely spaced whipstitch over each strand of embroidered yarn.
