    You will need;

    1 strand of double knitting to be worked on 4mm knitting needles – about 12g

    Or 2 strands of double knitting (equal to chunky weight yarn) to be worked on 6mm knitting needles – about 20g

    • If you are using the double knitting weight of yarn, then use 2 strands together throughout.
    • If you are using the chunky weight of yarn, then use 1 strand throughout.
    • Remember to count all the rows as you work up the square.

    cable 4 back – slip the next 2 stitches onto a cable needle (a large safety pin or tooth pick works just as well) and take the needle with the stitches on it to the back of the work, knit the next 2 stitches on the left hand needle as normal, put the missed stitches back onto the left hand needle and knit them.  You have crossed the stitches over creating the cable twist.

    Knit enough fish to cover the size you want your project to be.  Sew the very edges of the fish together through the slipped stitch, putting the fish in different directions for each row.

     

    * I use quality 100% acrylic Double Knitting yarn for all my knitting.  If you use a natural or a wool mix yarn you will need more.
