About: I love to create small projects that knit up quickly and give you a chance to learn a new technique. This project is a great way to learn to knit cables or read a chart in a low-time-investment project. Because the pattern is both written and charted, you can always check back on the written instructions to see if you are reading the chart correctly. Most of the people who have knit this have completed the knitting in two hours or less.

This knitted cover is a wonderful way to use up worsted weight yarn scraps and add a homemade touch to giving gift cards. The braids illustrate the connected relationships that fuel our giving.

This pattern has been test knit and edited to ensure you have a clear and worry-free knitting experience.

Yarn: Dream in Color Classy | Worsted / 10-Ply / 100% Merino Wool. You can use pretty much any worsted or aran weight yarn for this project. It has been test knit in acrylic, cotton, and wool.

Yardage: 20 yards

Needle Size: US 7 - 4.5 mm straight needles
