Based on the swatch I knit for Winter Weeds, I get 4.5 st to an inch (instead of the 5 the pattern calls for) on size 6 needles, so I am knitting the smallest size, because I want to go ahead and get this set up so I can travel with it this week. Cast on will be 84 stitches. (Although this is nice and fits me as well, I think I’ll go up a size in my next one for a slightly looser fit.)

Not crazy about the pattern links for tubular cast on, so I blogged a MUCH easier way, using Judy’s Magic Cast On. Bless her for being a knitting Icon!

I took a few liberties with the pattern and decided to do some random color work in a few rows between the two colors. I like how this turned out. We still need a pom-pom but I’m trying to decide between an alpaca fur one and a traditional one made of yarn.
