Measurements vary due to stretch factor…
When expanded circumference-wise
Circumference = approx 40” (101.5 cm)
Height = approx 9” (23 cm)

When stretched height-wise
Circumference = approx 25” (64 cm)
Height = 15” (38 cm)


Gauge not critical but will affect size and yard/meter needs.
Approximate gauge in stockinette = 26 sts by 38 row = 4” (10 cm)
These are “lacy” loose sts.

Chiffonade is a cooking prep technique for making long thin slices of herbs or leafy vegetables.
