This is the perfect project for those times when you have some special yarn and just want it to hug you. Simple and meditative knitting at its finest.

Instructions for both a plain Garter Hug and one with ruffles are included, as well as information on using different yarn, and maximizing yardage.

Fingering weight: approximately 350-600 yards of fingering weight yarn (I used Knitted Wit Victory Fingering in Autumn Rainbow
DK weight: 275-500 yards of DK weight yarn (I used Knitted Wit Victory DK in Feliciacakes).

Fingering weight: 22 sts = 4”/10 cm in garter stitch, measured after blocking.
DK weight: 18 sts = 4”/10cm in garter stitch, measured after blocking.

Finished measurements (as shown)
Fingering weight: wingspan: 50”; depth at center: 15”.
DK weight: wingspan: 60”; depth at center: 18”.
