Notes

Sensible Stash Busting / Xmas knitting (x 2)
AND
Xmas knitting (x 1)

Note: The yarn is held double so, if you swatch, swatch double yarn. I neglected to do this…

I used worsted wool with a size 9 needle (one size smaller than recommended) and it took much more yarn than I anticipated it would…

I’m planning on making this again but I’ll use a DK yarn instead of worsted and I’ll stick to a size 9 needle. I feel this is too big as written - and I did fewer rows in the middle section than called for. (Thankfully.)
