A 400-500 yard caked skein of fingering weight yarn, a size 6 or 7 US circular needle (24 or 32 inch), and your usual knitting kit. Pattern is included in the class handout.
Knitting Basics including sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles and crochet hooks of various sizes.
