Digital StripesThrow

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick« - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

8 stitches + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) with A.

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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

COLOR SEQUENCE
Rows 1-4:
Work with 1 strand each of A and C held together.
Rows 5 and 6: Work with 1 strand each of A and B held together.

Keeping first and last 2 stitches in Garter st and remaining stitches in Stockinette stitch, work 11 rows of Color Sequence.

Easy project to do , however I did have problem with the edges curling up.
