Needles and Gauge

It is easiest to use Magic Loop or to work these on 2 circulars in the round. Dpns are difficult to navigate around a figure-8 or Magic Cast-on, although they are excellent to use if you worked the provisional cast-on.
worsted: size US 6 (4.0 mm) or size for gauge—use dpns or two circulars or magic loop—whatever method you like for working in round, larger needle for bind-off

worsted: 21-22 sts in 4”/10 cm (5.25-5.5 sts per inch) in garter
DK: size US 4 (3.5 mm) or size for gauge
DK: 22-24 sts in 4”/10 cm(5.5-6 sts per inch) in garter
2 stitch markers

Stitches and Abbreviations
Garter in Round: knit one round, purl the next
Stockinette in Round: knit every round
2 x 2 ribbing: (k2, p2) repeat around (sts must be multiple of 4 to do this evenly)
BOR: beginning of round

Provisional cast-on: I use the crochet chain method. Use your favorite method. Or use

and avoid the provisional bind-off later.
