You will need:

  1. 300ish yards of worsted weight yarn. About 200 in the main color and 100 in offset color. 3 skeins of worsted weight yarn (50g each) of Knit Picks Wool is perfect for one pair. I had 20g left over of the offset color.
  2. Size 4.5mm double pointed knitting needles or magic loop needle. I found that my needles are actually a bit smaller then normal. I would say they are closer to a 4.25 needle.
  3. One small piece of worsted weight scrap yarn for the thumb.
  4. Yarn needle for weaving in ends.
  5. A hand to put the finished item on.

You can sell any finished item.
