HOMEWORK: Using light colored worsted weight 100% WOOL (not superwash) yarn and appropriate size 16” circular needles (probably size 7 – 9), cast on enough stitches to fill the needles. Then join and knit in the round for at least 8”. If you want, you can add a 1” garter stitch border to this which would make this it at least 10” long. Bind off the swatch and bring it to workshop.

Prerequisites:  Know how to cast on, bind off, knit, purl, and knit in the round. Having basic sewing skills would be helpful but are not required.
