NOTIONS REQUIRED

GAUGE
Exact gauge is not vital for this project. Use a needle size appropriate for the weight of yarn which creates a Garter stitch fabric that you like. The following gauges are from my samples:
Sock Weight Version: 22 sts and 42 rows= 4” in Garter stitch.
Worsted Weight Version: 14.5 sts and 28 rows= 4” in Garter stitch.
