THANKS TO B Gaskell FOR POINTING OUT THAT THERE WASN’T ANY MENTION OF HOW MANY BALLS/SKEINS OF YARN WERE NEEDED FOR THIS PROJECT! DUH…..SORRY ‘BOUT THAT!

GAUGE:

12 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
