Gauge is not important.
Knit from the top down, this wearable blanket is basic in-the-round knitting. Adjust size by changing needles or type of yarn. Very few increases and decreases are used. Circumferance and length can be customized. This pattern creates a tube that is approximately 32” around at that top and 36” long (without the tail). The body is knit in the round and then stitches are picked up and knit to make the tail that is a single thickness. A tail pattern is included, but any variation of lace, ribbing, stocking stitch or garter stitch can be used for the body and tail.
