Notes:
    The design stated here is only one of many possibilities.
    The varigated yarns are great for the contrast yarns.

    If a smaller or larger yarn is used then make a test swatch to
    determine the gauge.  Usually size small width is 18 inches
    medium  is 20 inches, and adult size is 22 inches.  The height
    is 8 to 9 inches or whatever you desire.
