The amount of ease will depend on your measurements and the size you choose (based on finished measurements). For help choosing a size, please visit this blog post.

Gauge — This pattern is written to work for either DK or worsted weight at the following gauges

  • DK – 21 st and 30 rows in 4 in/10 cm in color/texture pattern with largest needle (test sample knit on US size 6/4mm), blocked. A few yarn suggestions: 
    — Miss Babs Yowza | 100% superwash Merino wool | 560 yards/512 meters in 8 oz/225 grams 
     Madelinetosh Wool + Cotton | 50% Superwash Merino Wool / 50% Pima Cotton | 219 yards/200 meters in 100 grams 
  • Worsted weight: 20 stitches and 29 rows in 4 in/10 cm in color/texture pattern with largest needle (test sample knit on US Size 7/4.5mm), blocked. A few yarn suggestions:
    — Knit Picks High Desert | 100% USA Grown Shaniko Wool | 113 yards in 50 grams
    — Berroco Ultra Wool | 100% Superwash Wool | 219 yards/200 meters in 3.5 oz / 100 grams
    — Knit Picks Comfy Cotton | 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic | 109 yards in 50 grams

Gauge Note: The slipped stitch pattern makes the rows denser than the stockinette stitch rows. When taken together, the result is an approximate row gauge specified above. Do not fret too much about row gauge.
