Needles in a size that gives you the desired gauge and needles a size or two smaller for the ribbing, also 32” circular needles in the smaller size for the neck ribbing and button bands
Any number of shank buttons (solid buttons with a single loop in back)
Small crochet hook that can fit through the shank of your buttons

Gauge: It's especially important to make a gauge swatch for this pattern. Knit a large swatch (4” - 6” square) at the gauge you'd prefer for the yarn. Most yarn has a recommended gauge on its tag, which is a useful guideline. Wash and block the swatch the same way you'll
wash the sweater. Measure how many stitches and rows you have in 4” (this helps accommodate for an uneven gauge), then divide by 4 to figure out how many stitches and rows you have per inch. In order to be knit at any gauge, directions are given in inches
instead of a stitch count. So if the directions say to cast on 20” worth of stitches for your size, and your gauge is 4 sts to the inch, you'll cast on 80 sts.
