Posted by on August 27, 2013

Materials Needed:
size 10 circular knitting needles
optional: atleast one circular sized smaller is used as a stitch holder and for knitting two rounds together in a welt. (I used to 2 in sizes 7 & 8) or scraps of waste yarn.
398 yards, Caron One Pound in Claret, or color and yarn of your choice. 🙂 this is not a picky project 
stitch markers
Darning Needle and scissors
Gauge: with size 10 needles in st st: 15 sts = 4 inches and 20 rounds = 4 inches; Adjust your gauge to your needle size and yarn to make the finished garment about 48 inches in circumference and 9.5 inches tall.
Terms used:K= Knit

P =Purl

Rnd(s) = Round(s)

st(s) = stitch(es)

sk = skip

Special stitches used:
Welt(ing): Knit together 1 st from working round and one st from previously marked round, with purl bumps touching each other; as when doing a 3 needle bind off – but do not bind off, keep knitting.Here is a 5:33 video from BerrocoKnitBits that covers this technique pretty well, or you can try to follow my pictures.
