  • 3.5mm knitting needles
  • 4 mm knitting needles
  • 150 grams double knitting yarn
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle

You Will Also Need:

  • This isn't a difficult pattern to knit
  • The picture with this pattern shows a slightly shorter version of the pattern, as it was made for someone in particular.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Any double knitting yarn is ideal
