Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 8 sts + 12 rows (about 4 inch or 10 cm) in pattern to knit a topper that is about 30 inch x 38 inch (76 cm x 96-1/2 cm) before folding and seaming. 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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

    Stitch Explanation Yo (yarn over) An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows: Bring yarn to front, between the needles. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
