GAUGE
Finished Gauge:
22 stitches & 32 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch with Size A needles, after blocking

Note that finished (blocked) Row Gauge is of critical importance in this pattern. If you are not matching row gauge, shaping rates will need to be re-calculated along the edges to match schematic measurements. Swatching beforehand is very much encouraged.

NEEDLES
Size A (Gauge Needle):
One pair of straight or one 32” long circular needle(s), and one 16” long circular, in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size B:
One 32” circular needle and a set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) three sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 2¾ mm (US 2)

If using the Magic Loop method for working Sleeves in the round, the 32” circular needles can be used and the DPNs omitted.
