This pattern uses worsted weight yarn and a size 4mm crochet hook.

The pattern will work as written if you have a 5.5-6.5 inch wrist and a thumb circumference of 2-3 inches. For a 6.5 or 7.5 inch wrist, go up a hook size (4.5 mm) or for a larger wrist you can even go up to a 5mm crochet hook and go up a yarn weight to aran. Gauge is 3.25 hdc stitches to an inch when working in the round.

There is a video (linked in the pattern) to help with beginner crocheters. I also took clear pictures of difficult rounds and put those in the last page of the pattern.

You will need:

  • 100ish yards of worsted weight yarn.
  • Size 4 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends.
  • A arm to put the finished item on.
