2.5mm straight needles for the cast on (or circular needles used to knit flat) or size needed to get gauge.
Tapestry needle

You may want to use a larger needle for the cast on, since it’s not particularly stretchy. If you are not confident of your gauge for stranded colourwork, it is worth doing a sample and maybe going up a needle size for this part of the sock (or down a size for the plain section).

Over colourwork pattern: 9 stitches, 11 rows per inch.
Over plain stocking stitch: 8 stitches, 12 rows per inch.

This pattern was previously used as part of Sock Madness 11 in 2017.
