Yarn: Patons Beehive Shetland Chunky, 75% Acrylic/25% Wool, in Dark Teal

Needles: 5 mm / 9 US

Gauge: 3.5 stitches and 7 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Garter Stitch

Source: BW1, p. 10.

Comments: I knit this for my knitting class - their first project was to knit garter stitch rectangles (bigger than this one!), which we would then sew together with the mattress to stitch to make fingerless mittens.  I ran out of yarn though, so mine is a little small.  I didn't realize that Ms. Walker included garter stitch in her books, but I guess it makes sense - it is a stitch pattern, after all! :)
