Any size of needles ( and here I am using 4.00mm x 40 cm circular needles)
Any Medium yarns ( and here I am using Yazgulu Ice Yarns )
Card for making tassel (if necessary)
Cast On 80 sts (for baby to 2-3 years old)
At the beginning of sts, place a marker to mark your starting point. Make sure your that your stitches are not twisting. We are going to work in the round.
Row 1: [K2,P2]
Row 2: [P2,K2]
Repeat Row 1 – Row 2 until you desired length ( or at least until 10 rows)
After you done with Row 1 and Row 2, continue the next rows with Knit.
Next Rows: Keep doing Knit Stitch — ( At least to 10-15 cm length from Casting On) or until your desired length.
Using the thread needle, close up the top part with Kitchener Stitch:
**for this part, don’t forget to divide your stitches fairly into two needles (like magic loop). For example: Since you are casting on 80 sts, for Kitchener stitch, divide your sts into 40-40 then follow the instruction below to bind off your top:
(PF,KB,**KF(drop)PF,PB(drop),KB**) – Repeat this ** to ** until the end of the last row.
F- Front, B- Back.
