Sea Silk – Handmaiden Fine Yarn – in Sangria. 2 skeins.
24″ 3.25mm circular needles
6 stitches per inch, but gauge not important for this project.
14″ x 85″ blocked
This pattern is a 16 stitch repeat (indicated by shaded portion on chart) with a garter stitch boarder.
You may wish to use Life Lines after every pattern repeat…just in case.
Cast on 87 stitches.
Work 3 ridges (six rows) of garter stitch.
Begin charted portion, reading odd numbered rows from right to left and even numbered rows from left to right.
Repeat chart (ending on either Row 8 or 16 if possible) until there is just enough yarn to knit 3 ridges (six rows) of garter stitch.
Cast off VERY LOOSELY. I often use a needle at least 1mm larger than that used in the body.
Sew in ends.
