    Cast on 85 stitches with 5 strands of DK yarn held together using size 15 mm circular needles.

    Use size 15mm needles to keep the knitting loose and drape nicely. Smaller needles will make a stiff fabric.

    The 5 strands can become twisted together during the cast on process. Be sure to keep the strands in order before starting to knit.
