6.5″ x 60″
In stitch pattern, 14 sts for 7 rows measures approximately 4″ square.
- (A) Red Heart “Super Saver” (100% acrylic, aran size 4 weight): 1 skein or approx. 236 yards required (shown in grey heather)

To increase or decrease the width, chain any multiple of 4 then add 5.
If you prefer, you can substitute a beginning chain 2 instead of a beginning chain 3 on odd rows.
I’ve indicated the odd row side as the right side of the project solely because I liked the look of that side better. In truth, both sides are lovely and you can take your pick.
