You will need two tubes of size 6 beads for this jacket and a crochet hook small enough to fit through the hole of the beads. There is no way to string the beads on and then knit the pattern. They will HAVE to be put in with a crochet hook! We are trying something new! To make it easier, all sizes have their own instructions all together instead of giving numbers in brackets. (it irritates me and I always ALWAYS at least get a wrong number once). It is easy to just pick the pages you need for your size in your printing screen and only print those, along with the top page and the key. You get all sizes, but you only have to print the one you need and only have the numbers pertaining to your project! 625 - 875 yards (572 - 800 m) depending on size BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic lace knitting skills GAUGE 28 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS s, m, l, 42gg SUGGESTED YARN 875 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Cascade Yarns Cash Vero DK Any DK weight yarn
