This witchy-striped tube top is easy to knit: no seaming, grafting, or blocking. It’s great for Halloween, and it can be made in other holiday, piratey, or school colors. The tube top was designed to go with my pattern, Witch Warmers, which includes striped armwarmers, legwarmers, and a neckwarmer.
US 4/3.5 mm circular needle with 30” - 40” / 76.5-102cm cable
54" / 138cm narrow 1/8" or 3mm satin ribbon
approx. 400 yds / 370 meters sportweight wool or wool-blend. The pictures show Wool-Ease Sportweight, which has been discontinued. Plymouth Encore DK is a fine substitute.
20 st x 16 rows = 2.5" x 2.5" / 6.5cm x 6.5cm (flat swatch) in K1P1 rib
