Materials: #3 and #4 16 inch circular, and DPNs for the heel and toe (The fabric should be dense and sturdy, so if you are typically a loose knitter, you should consider knitting down needle sizes.), 100 grams of sport or DK weight yarn for the main color, lesser amounts for contrasting color. We recommend Berroco Ultra Wool DK, Juniper Moon Patagonia or Kelbourne Woolens Scout.
