Step 1

10 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Step 2

Cast on 5 sts.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: K 3, yo, k 2.
Row 3: K 3, yo, k 3.
Row 4: K 3, yo, k to end of row.
Repeat last row until you have 99 sts on needle.
Next (decrease) row: K 2, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end of row.
Repeat last row until 5 sts remain. Bind off.

Step 3

Weave in ends.
