  • 3 colours in Double Knitting yarn, approximated 30g or 100m
  • 5mm circular needle

Two rings are made. When the third ring has been cast on, but before it it joined, the circular needle is threaded through the two rings already made.

The result is something that looks complicated, but is actually very simple to make. The only knitting techniques required are cast on, join, knit and cast off.
