Here is my version, knit in the round on size 8 needles, brown sheep worsted, 88 stitches cast on. Good for mens and Ladies M-L (nice and stretchy). The guage is about 5 stitches per inch. I am making others with different tops--this one is flat, and the others I am working on are tapering slowly into a bit of an i-cord top for that 'reservoir tip' thing...Thanks again for the idea ilovegenewilder!!! The felt patches are so awesome too!!!
