Additional Materials

GAUGE:
8 sts and 12 rows = 4 inches in St 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.

NOTES:
3-needle bind off: Put half of sts on spare needle, place 2 needles holding sts together, right sides together (wrong side will face out).

Knit together one st from each needle, *knit together one st from each needle, pass first st worked over second to bind off*; rep from * to * across to last st.

Cut working yarn and pull through last st to secure.
