MATERIALS

  • 1 (1, 1, 1, 2) skeins of Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino, 100% merino wool. Each skein is approximately 87 yards/100 grams; approximately 46 (58, 65, 79, 87) yards required. We used Eggshell Blue for our Baby hat, Artemisia Green for the Kid one, and Heirloom White for the Adult Small. NOTE: You may need only one skein for the Adult Large size (it’s close!), so don’t wind your second skein into a ball until you have to. If you don’t end up needing it, you can exchange the skein for store credit within six months of purchasing it!

  • US 11, 16-inch circular needles

  • A set of US 11 double pointed needles

  • Stitch markers, including one unique
