Please refer to the PDF for gauge information. 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.

Spool Knit Cat-in-a-Bag Reviewed by Dorcas Berthold on 2011-03-02 ****
I didn't use a spool knitter. I had the yarn and was looking for something to do with it. So I read through instructions and I began knitting in the round on dpn's I moved up to a pair of cable needles. It came out great. I wish I could snuggle up in it.
My only problem is the finicky cat! lol He loves bags of plastic and paper, but not this soft one. After a few days I tried to entice my arthritic Yorkie to cuddle up in it. He just wasn't in to it either. I have washed it several times in hopes one of my critters would take to it, but no luck.
If the opening was just a bit smaller it could be a crazy soft hat! lol
