BLOCKING: Basically there are 2 ways of blocking.
1.  Steam blocking: arrange item on a flat surface, hold steam iron above the surface, (not touching the surface), and steam. Allow the item to dry in the shape desired.
2.  Immerse in water, and squeeze water out, or spray with water. Arrange item on a thick bath towel, shape as desired, allow to dry undisturbed.

Worsted weight yarn (180-200 yards) 
          (OR any size yarn desired.)
4mm (US 6),    or   6 mm (US 10) knitting needles

The Shale stitch is cast on in multiples of 18 stitches,
