This little pattern comes courtesy of the inspiring, intrepid, irrepressible Shirley Grade, who operated the Yarn House in Elm Grove, Wisconsin, into her 80s. Thanks again, Shirl! The slipped stitches at the end of each row result in an I-cord edging that smooshes the garter ridges closer for extra toastiness.

This pattern has instructions for 4 gauges: Super Chunky, Chunky, Worsted, and DK.

Here are links to the project page for each on our website:
