Tools & Other Supplies
4 markers, one of which should be a different color
Stitch holders – short and long
Scrap yarn and crochet hook for optional provisional CO
For optional pockets: Less than a yard of fabric. I used cotton lawn but quilting cotton or any smooth thin shirting fabric will be great. You’ll need to cut 4 pocket pieces using the provided template. It’s a great way to use up scraps if you have a fabric stash: no one says your pockets need to match each other!
