What materials did you use? Spud and Chloe Fine yarn in "Red Hot". A set of size 6 DPNs that are plastic and lace tip that I am loving for this but can't remember for the life of me what brand they are.

Hi, I was immediately drawn to your project because of color choice but the knitting really caught my attention. The center is very tight and the even stitching is just great.

Thank you for noticing!

Just saw the fiber you are using. I was given to skeins of this years ago. Cleo in hot red. I have finally gotten around to starting an inventory of my stash, literally came across this yarn last night and I had no idea what kind of a project I could possibly knit. Now I know and will be as daring as you to show it off! Again, good work.

Oh nice, I really love the color. That is what drew me to the yarn first. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing yours!

It's a pretty good looking "hot mess" to me :):):)

I'd like to know how you started the square I've met seen that before.

I made it just as shes shows in the video. It is a little finicky but as long as you can use a table or something to steady your needles to help you keep from twisting your stitches. Once I'm a few rows in I go back and take the tail at the middle and loop through those couple of beginning stitches and draw them together to make it nice and tight.
