This project takes such little yarn that most knitters will have quite a few options to choose from. I settled on a DK weight wool yarn and size 2 needles, but you can totally play around with different weights, gauges, and fibers.

Finished Size: One size, approximately 3.25″x4.25″.


Yarn About 10g of any DK weight yarn. I prefer wool for this project, but feel free to experiment!

Needles Size 2 (2.75 mm) needles.

Notions Tapestry needle, sewing needle, matching thread, straight pins.


Not necessary.
