Gauge:

Not critical, but will affect yardage and size.

Samples both used US 17 (12.75 mm) needles, with yarns from 2 -3 WPI, but I knit tightly - you may want to start with US 15 (10 mm) needles if you don't ~ or if you are using smaller yarn.

Sample gauges:

Gray (Schulana @ 3 WPI) in stockinette, as knit/no block
9.5 sts by 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) square.

Purple multi (Rasta @ 2.25 WPI) in stockinette, as knit/no block
8.75 sts by 10.75 rows = 4" (10 cm) square.

The design works nicely with different gauges/yarn weights.
Adjust needle size according to your taste, desired look and chosen yarn.

The fibers - each with unique properties to ...
