one skein of heavy worsted/bulky-weight yarn (not super bulky)
2 size 9 US (5.5 mm) circular needles for knitting in the round
stitch markers to keep the pattern repeats straight
This is an intermediate pattern, but I’ve done my best to give tips for fearless, experienced beginners, as well. You’ll need to know or learn Judy’s Magic Cast On, LRinc, kfb, pfb, and you might want to place stitch markers between each pattern repeat. There’s also a tip for how to make your cast-off edge look seamless, complete with photos.
