Skill Level: Intermediate. Should be familiar with post stitches.

Supplies Needed:
3 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted in Rose Heather. You will hold two strands together to form a chunky weight. This is the best color match I have found.

Alternate: Manos Maxima or Cascade 128

Suggested Hook:K

Alternate yarns and hooks: Any chunky weight or 2 strands of aran/worsted held together will work well. I suggest wool or wool blends. You want a bit of sturdiness to your yarn so that it stands up the way it should and of course wool is more authentic to the time period we are attempting to recreate with this piece. You can also make it with a single strand of worsted, or even sport or DK, but will need to adjust the stitch count as explained in the pattern.
