Worsted (9 wpi) ?
20 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches
in St st
US 4 - 3.5 mm
61 yards (56 m)
4.5" across shell and 7" from tip of claw to end of hindmost leg

For all of the worsted weight toys in this book, I used a gauge of 20 sts and 24 rows = 4″ in stockinet stitch, which I achieved with US size 6 needles. For Cotton Fleece and Serendipity Tweed, I went down two sizes in needles, resulting in a different gauge, but producing a dense fabric suitable for knitted toys. It is extremely important, whatever yarn you are using, to produce a firm, dense fabric.

Colors used in the model:

  • CW201 (Barn Red)
  • CW625 (Terracotta Canyon)
  • CW100 (Cotton Ball)
  • CW005 (Cavern)
