I found the pattern here on Ravelry for free. I cast on 88 stitches which gave me the right gauge for the ribbing. I reduced to 84 stitches in the knit part.
I tried this cast on and it seems to give a nice stretchy edge. I am blending two sports weight yarns. The first is Nature Spun in Burnt Sienna (100% wool). The second is Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino in a gray. This one is a mix of wool and cashmere and something called 'microfibre'. Not sure if that is sheep or rabbit. :-)
I really like the color pattern that mixing two strands of wool gave me.
Loved this one so much, I've cast on another for me!
