The gauge is done in Garter Stitch using the larger needles and 2 strands of yarn held together.

The project is worked with double strands.

“I especially enjoy making easy, utilitarian projects with nontraditional materias. For this serving tray, I worked two strands of worsted weight linen in a combination of Garter and Stockinette stitches, then immersed the floppy fabric in fabric stiffener to make it surdy enough to be useful.” Leigh Radford
