Yarn: Patons Shetland Chunky, 75% Acrylic/25% Wool, in Grey Marl
Needles: 5.5 mm / 9 US
Gauge: 4.5 stitches and 5 rows per inch
Stitch Pattern: 1 x 1 Rib
Comments: You can never go wrong with 1x1 ribbing, even in an otherwise very busy yarn. I made this as a sample for a knitting class I'm doing - although the pattern really is far more effective when worked in multiple colours, à la the ubiquitous noro striped scarf!
