Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 21 sts and 27 rows (4 inch) in stocking st to knit donuts that measure approximately 4 inch in diameter. 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 less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size needle. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. alt = alternate m1 = make 1 stitch by picking up horizontal loop lying before next stitch and knitting into back of loop Note: Each Donut uses two different shades.
