  1. Cast on 32 stitches.
  2. Work in knit 1, purl 1 ribbing for 4 rows.
  3. Keep the first 4 and last 4 stitches in ribbing throughout. On the next row, start working all other stitches in Stockinette Stitch. On this row, work the first 4 stitches, then knit 2 together and work across normally. For remaining rows, work even.
  4. Work in Stockinette Stitch for about an inch, ending with a purl row. Then work the sun chart, still keeping the outside stitches in ribbing (they are not noted on the chart).
  5. Work another inch or so in Stockinette, ending with a knit row. Right before the rib stitches at the end of the last row, knit in the front and back of the last stitch.
  6. Work 4 rows in knit 1, purl 1 ribbing.
  7. Bind off in pattern.
  8. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
