Set up loom for double knit at 3 cm spacing. Stockinette cast on 82 stitches and place anchor yarn.
Row 2: Rib stitch. Decrease 1 stitch on each end after knitting over each row.
Repeat Row 2 (for 19 rows) until you have only 4 stitches on the loom.
Next row: stockinette stitch to end of row.
Then decrease 1 stitch on each end of row, 2 stitches are remaining.
Decrease one stitch, leaving only one loop each on the front side and one loop on the back side. Knit over, then move one loop from back board to front board and knit over. Cut working yarn to 8” inches and slip tail through final loop and tighten.
Bind off last row, hooking 2 loops over 1 with crochet hook, then 2 loops over 1 until the last loop is pulled through the yarn tail. In the same way, bind off anchor yarn until one loop remains on crochet hook. Pull yarn tail through loop for knot. Weave ends into the knitting.
