24 sts per 10 cm / 4” in pattern on 4.5mm (US 7)
If you’re knitting more than three sts of the same colour, tack down the second colour on the WS to prevent long floats. Break your yarn if you won’t be using that colour in the next several rounds, leave a tail to weave in later. If you would like a smaller fit you can drop the needle size down to 3.25mm (US 3) & 4mm (US 6).
