Overview: Fast and fun to knit, a trick with the stitches makes these beautifully unique upraised and elongated sections. Worked in the round on big needles with super bulky yarn, it goes quick - whip up a last minute gift in an afternoon. A complex at first glance technique that is really quite simple and fun to create. So try something new :) With only a five stitch/four row repeat it's easy to memorize and keep track of. A great skill builder for beginners or addition to the repertoire of more advanced knitters.
Sz US 15 (10 mm) circular needles 20 - 29" (51 - 74 cm) long
164 yards(150 m) of super bulky yarn - Sample used Schulana Cortina - Malabrigo Rasta or Berocco Sundae are also nice substitutions
1 stitch marker for EOR (end of round)
row counter (optional - there are only 4 so it's pretty easy to keep your place)
Darning needle to sew tails
Not critical to project. For yarn selection - roughly 2 stiches per inch (2.5 cm) in stockinette. For modification of circumference - one repeat (5 stitches in patt.) is 2.25" relaxed as knit, 3" stretched. Measures 30" (76 cm) around by 11.75" (30 cm) tall, before (optional) blocking.
