Pattern Stitch is Double Garter
Rows 1 and 2 Knit
Rows 3 and 4 Purl
Repeat these 4 rows for Double Garter Stitch
Cast on 142 stitches
Beginning with row 1 work in Double Garter Stitch for two rows.

K2tog, fasten off.
Cut 3 strands of yarn each 10 inches long for each fringe.
Hold 3 strands together and fold in half.
Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop.
Pull ends of fringe through this loop.
Pull to tighten.
Make fringe in center of last row.
Make an equal number of fringes spaced between each purl ridge along both side edges.
Trim fringe evenly.
I used size 9 knitting needles - started with circular and when the stitches were manageable changed to straight needles.
The yarn is Bernat Pop
Interesting color name - Lipstick On Your Collar 🙂
This was a fun project and I look forward to making more.
