- 8 different color skeins of worsted weight yarn (suggested yarns are Valley Yarns Northampton or Cascade Yarns 220). Class samples were made using the following colors: Light blue, Green, Red, Yellow, White, Brown, Pink, and Orange; However, please choose any color combination you like.
- Needles: Bring a range of sizes from US 5–US 8 16-inch circular needles to get gauge of 4.5-5 sts/inch. Make sure the cable that joins the needles is flexible. Tight cables that coil up are difficult to work with. Knitter's Pride and Addi Turbo needles are fixed needles that have a flexible cable. Two of the projects are worked back and forth, for which you may choose to use straight needles; you can work back and forth on the circular needles listed above. For one of the later projects you will need either a set of double pointed needles in the same size as the 16-inch circular listed above, or a second circular needle in the same size (but not necessarily the same length).
