5 stitch markers – 1 distinct to mark the beginning of the round

Gauge:
Smaller needles: 23 sts in 1×1 ribbing = 4 in / 10 cm after blocking
Larger needles: 17 sts x 28 rows stockinette in the round = 4 in x 4 in / 10 cm x 10 cm after blocking
Note: testers using superwash yarn noticed it grew a lot when blocking, test with a bigger swatch than normal and really stretch it, since the weight of your garment will stretch the yarn a bit.
