MATERIALS INCLUDED: Supply List: Medium Weight Yarn (4), Knitting Needle in Round (5.5mm), Tapestry Needle and use of Class Scissors BRING YOUR OWN SUPPLIES IF YOU WANT:
  • Medium Weight Yarn (4)
  • Use of ┬áThe Makery Knitting Needle in Round (5.5mm) - On the Back on the yarn label look for the needle icon and above squair icon it should say the size. (5.5mm) - You would look for the 5.5mm on the needle package and you want the cord attached and that also comes in a size. I like the 16 inch for beanies due to the simplicity of not fussing with a long cord. Note you can go up a size but not by too much or the stitches will look loose and effect the guage. If you can't find 5.5 mm, choose 6 mm or 6.5 mm. Note: the Needles in Round have a cord attached to the needles and can be found at most craft supply stores such as JoAnn's Fabrics and Michael's Craft Stores.
