That might work, but I'm still a beginner and would probably need more specific directions. I figure it can't be too hard but I was looking for a pattern or something with instructions.

I'm not sure what kind it is. I did some swatches and went with a zigzag stockinette stitch. I am having problems with the worming, though. Any way to fix that?

Yes, but I don't want my yarn to be that big.

So if I figure out that I've got 6 st per inch and the pattern is 2, does that mean I multiply their CO number by 3?

Ok, that's what I was thinking.

Any idea why there's a yo, k2tog in the middle of one row?

Also, when it says to work in stockinette for 4 rows, that just means k, p, k, p, right?
