Knit from the top down, with no need for a pre-knitting gauge swatch! This pattern will work with almost any yarn, from fingering to chunky.
Sized for adults average.
This pattern is an excellent way to use a skein of handspun yarn, for two reasons. First, handspun yarn is expensive, and sometimes quite fragile. You do not need to knit a gauge swatch, so there is no potential waste of the precious handspun yarn. Second, the stockinette crown with fully fashioned decreases, and the seed stitch body, will show the unique color variations to best advantage.
Sample knit with 2 balls of "Rythm", available at www.jojoland.com, with size 5 US needles.
You will need:
About 100 gms yarn, your choice (worsted 200-220 yds) A set of double point and 16# circular knitting needles, in a size appropriate for the yarn you are using. 3 buttons, 5/8 to 7/16 inch.
