Please do a swatch for gauge- I used a 4mm needle- but please see which you need!)

This pattern was made as a way of using up
an entire skein of yarn.
In my studio I have jars filled with the ends of yarn
that were leftover from past projects.
While this is a beautiful decoration and it reminds me
of all of the lovely things i’ve made,
I just want to be able to use a whole skein.
1 skein Cashmere and Silk 4-ply from We Will Tell You All Of Our Secrets
(50g- 113m/124yds) Dyed with bucthorn and cochineal.

Needles to get gauge. 24” or longer to fit all of those stitches!
I used a 4mm needle, but find the drape or gauge you’d like.

Gauge: 20 sts and 24 rows= 4inchesX4inches
in stockinette stitch.
Total length: 63 inches (not including tassels or pom poms)
Total height: 5 inches

Thank you so much for taking the time with this pattern.
