Needles and Notions
Needle Sizes are recommendations only. Always use needle size necessary to obtain gauge.

US #10/6.00 mm 24-32 in/60-80 cm circular needle
US#6/4.00 mm 24-32 in/60-80 cm circular needle
US #4/3.55 mm 24-32 in/60-80 cm circular needle
US #11/8.00mm 24-32 in/60-80 cm circular needle (optional – to maintain gauge over color charts)

Circular needles are recommended because the project is quite heavy and circular needles will support this weight more effectively.
