Suggested yarn and needle sizes

You will need two skeins of Dream in Color Smooshy or Smooshy with Cashmere in your main color and two skeins in your contrasting color for a total of four skeins, 800 yards of each color.

A range of recommended needle sizes (US 2 to US 3) has been given to help you attain gauge. If you knit tightly, start with a larger needle, and if you knit loosely go with a smaller needle. You will not need to change needle sizes during the project. Swatching is recommended as this pattern will use most of the yarn in each skein.
