230 yards of lace weight yarn. Used here: Rowan Kidsilk Haze col. 596 (25g/229y): 1 ball, tapestry needle to weave in ends, scissors.
Knitting needles size US 7(4.5 mm). A needle with a very pointy tip is highly recommended for this project (e.g. Skacel Addi Lace needle)
Gauge: 17sts/26 rows = 4”/4” worked in Stockinette Stitch (= knit on RS, purl on WS). The gauge is not critical for this project.
Measurements: 10 ½“/52”
* means repeat from *
purlwise means to insert needle from right to left into stitch as you would for a purl stitch
Cast on 42 sts (or if you want a different width cast on any multiple of 6 for example: 24/30/36/42...sts)
Row 1: slip first stitch purlwise with yarn in front, k2tog, yo, *k4, k2tog, yo rep from *to last 3 sts: k3.
Repeat Row 1 until have about 2 yards of yarn left to bind off.
! Bind off in this way to ensure a looser bind off edge:
knit 2 stitches, * then insert left hand needle into front of both just knitted stitches and knit them together, k1 then repeat from * to end of row.
Weave in ends. No blocking required.
