On to another strip. Don’t get too caught up in the easiness of this…the hard stuff comes soon 🙂
Using Color D, cast on 45 stitches using preferred cast on and 24? US#5 needles or straight US#5 needles. I chose the longtail cast on.
Work in garter stitch (knit every row) for a total of 60 rows.
Break color D and join color E. Work in garter stitch for a total of 60 rows.
Break color E. Join color D and work one knit row. Do NOT cut yarn, join color B and work one knit row. Do NOT cut yarn and join color C and work one knit row. You should now have three strands hanging from your work. Continue to alternate these three colors while working in garter stitch (knit every row). Draw the appropriate color up the side of the fabric being careful not to pull too tightly, as it will cause the fabric to buckle. Do this for a total of 60 rows, alternating D, B, C etc.
Cut all colors except color B and work 60 rows of garter stitch in color B.
Bind off loosely.
