Step 1 - Cast on 20 stitches
If you don't know how to cast on, here's a quick tutorial:
Step 2 - Knit 43 rows or 14 inches. Not sure how to knit? Sure you do!
This is just knitting one row, turning the needles around, and knitting the row again. Back and forth, you'll do this for about 3 hours so be sure to pop in your favorite movie or podcasts! You'll do this until you've reached 14" long or can see 43 rows.
Note that at this point, you can tie the ends into knots and cut off the strings or sew them into the edge.
Step 5 - Cinch the yarn and tie a knot
Step 6 - Wrap the yarn around the knot or cut off the strings
Step 7 - Wear!
