Start off with some worsted weight (4) yarn. I used Caron Simply Soft in Pagoda and Sunshine.
Next, pick up a pair of size 5 needles, or something close, honestly it doesn’t matter too much.
1. Cast on 25 stitches.
2. Knit the first 3 rows.
4. Purl a row and knit a row (making sure to knit the first and last 3 sts) until you have a square (about 28 rows with my needle size).
4. Knit the last 3 rows.
5. Bind off and sew in.
BOOOOOOOOOM! That is it. Dead serious. Dead simple. Now go make a cup on tea and put your creation to work! Cheerio!
