-1 Skein Tosh Merino Light (420 yds, 100% Superwash Merino Single ply) - Shown in Toshstrology - March ‘16 - Aries
-US 4 - 24” circular or straight needle (or size needed to get gauge)
-Tapestry needle

Approximately 24 sts & 34 rows in 4” in garter stitch after steam blocking.

Please Note: Checking gauge and adjusting needle size if needed is important because yardage is quite close. I designed this to maximize the full skein of Tosh Merino Light, so please keep an eye on your yardage use by checking gauge or weight throughout the project. If you don’t adjust needle size and your gauge is too large, please see notes in pattern below to adjust as you go. If you prefer not to bother with gauge, please be sure to choose an alternate yarn with more yardage -or- buy an extra skein of yarn to ensure you will not run out.

Finished Measurements (approximate, after steam blocking):
66” top edge
86” bottom edge
11” at widest point
