Garter Rib For That Dull Man in Your Life

If your man is anything like my John, who has conservative taste in clothing, this would be considered daring but wearable.

The yarn is Italian. 50% Merino, 25% Cashmere and 25% silk. 2/15 weight used double.

This approximates to 375m per 100gm. This could easily be knitted by hand, using approximately 3mm needles.

It was knitted using the Brother Garter Carriage on tension 10, on a Brother 940. The gauge was 27sts and 46 rows to 10cm AFTER washing and tumble drying. The completed seater was washed and tumble dried. From now on it will be machine washed on a 30c delicate cycle and dried flat.
