Secure yarn on inside of work. Working from left to right, carry needle and yarn around from back to front, allow yarn to wrap loosely over edge of work. *Insert needle from front to back approx. 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) from previous stitch and from edge of work, catching yarn wrap with needle to form a "corner". Gently tighten stitch; repeat from * along edge.
With A, cast on 56 stitches. Work in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) until piece measures about 11 in. (28 cm) from beginning. Bind off.
Weave in ends.
Wash by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry. Remove from dryer and pull into shape.
