Lion Brand® Sasha
12 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side).
Cast on 10 stitches. Work in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) until about 30 in. (76 cm) of yarn remains. Bind off.
Sew short ends of strip together. Weave in ends.
Per prior review, this pattern curls and looks unfinished. I cast on 12 stitches with bulky yarn such as Thick and Quick and used size 10 needles (gauge was 4 stitches=1 inch)
Then I knit the first 2 stitches, P,K (seed stitch)& K last 2 stitches in row. Work until about 18-19" and bind off. Very cool!
Other pattern that turned out well: Cast on 12 stiches, bulky yarn, #10 needles. (again 4 stitches= 1"). Use needles that give you this gauge. P first two stitches than do stockinette st ( K row one, P row Two) til last two stitches and pearl. For variety 1 did this for 6 rows than seed stitch for 4 rows (remembering to pearl first 2 and last 2 stitches).
Both turned out really well and no edge curl issues. Experiment and make your own pattern as I did. It's fun!!
