Centre rib section measures 8cm wide when relaxed, by 35cm long.

Total length = approximately 149cm

Materials

Yarn: 300m of black 8 ply wool and 200m of variegated 8ply wool.

22sts to 10cm over st st knit on 4mm needles

Abbreviations

Inc/Increase = knit (or purl) the next st but do not drop it off the left hand needle, knit into back of the same stitch, then drop it off the left hand needle. You will have turned 1 stitch into 2 stitches.
