Needles: US 10 (6 mm) 24” / 60 cm circular knitting needles

Supplies: Darning needle

Gauge: 16 sts and 30 rows to 4” garter stitch.

For a tidier edge, slip the first stitch of every row as if to purl then continue knitting the row as normal. On a row with a new color, be sure to knit all the stitches to have a smooth color transition.
