tools
stitch markers, spare DPN, darning needle.

VERY IMPORTANT: If substituting yarns make sure to use a fibre with a similar large halo that will expand on blocking as the gauge is quite loose to allow Hythe’s kid mohair fibres to expand and create a weightless insulation between stitches.

Swatch carefully to avoid disappointment and yarn shortage.Yarn choices are key to this design.
