MATERIALS

  • Main Color (MC): 7 (8, 9, 10, 11) skeins of Habu’s Silk Gima, 100% silk. I used the color 00 White: http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/item/9443
  • Contrast Color 1 (CC1): 2 cones of Habu’s Linen Wrapped Silk, 99% silk, 1 % linen. I used the color 5 Red: http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/item/9444
  • Contrast Color 2 (CC2): 1 cone of Habu’s Linen Wrapped Silk, 99% silk, 1 % linen. I used the color 8 Salmon: http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/item/9444
  • A US #2, 32-inch circular needle (A circular needle is required because the stitch pattern, when worked flat, requires you to slide the stitches from one end of the needle to the other. I highly recommend using Skacel’s Addi Turbo Rocket circular needles. They have the tips of Skacel’s lace needles and the body of their original nickel-plated Addi Turbos!)
  • A US #2, 12 or 16-inch circular needle (optional; for picking up and working upper sleeves)
  • A set of US #2 double pointed needles
  • 1 removable stitch marker
