4 yards waste yarn in the same thickness as your chosen sock yarn, in a contrasting color
Knit a swatch – in the round!!
Cast on 32 stitches, knit to end of row,
DO NOT Turn, let yarn flow along back of knitting (similar to doing an I-cord), keep this strand of yarn loose enough so that at the end you can flatten out your swatch to measure it,
Then slide knitted stitches to other end of needle.
You are imitating knitting in the round – so just knit each row, never turning.
Complete 20 rows of stockinette stitch, bind off but don’t cut yarn;
Soak swatch and let dry flat without pinning or stretching.
Supplies must be purchased at BMYS. Thank you!
