Just want some great "idiot knitting"?
Look no further!
Instructions for short rows given with photos. Two options for edgings are given.
ability to follow pattern instructions on blind faith
use of stitch markers
knowledge of short-rows helps but is explained, regardless
Nice, big, and comfy
Any worsted will do; blue sample knit with ten (10) balls of Lion Brand Wool-Ease
? US 13 (9 mm) straight or circ Notions?
stitch markers (at least 20); crochet hook helpful, but not mandatory.
Almost unimportant; Sample knit at 10 sts=4"; 9 purl bumps=4"
Great for using up leftover yarn.
