This one is knit with a size 17 needle in the round. My version is 62" long by 10" wide and I doubled my handspun yarn to get it even bigger. Make sure when you join your stitches in the round that the row is not twisted, You want a straight edge. The twist comes when you double wrap it.
Cast On 140 stitches. Knit one row and place a marker. Purl the next row being careful not to twist the row. You want to make sure the stitches line up correctly. Continue alternating until you have the width you'd like. In this case, I had 40 rows in the round. Then Bind Off. Weave in your ends and enjoy!
Side Note: I'm so used to knitting with much smaller needles that this felt like I was knitting with Lincoln logs...but it was done before I knew it.
