The total yardage includes both yarns. The pattern is worked in two colours of Sirdar DK. For each colour, yardage is between 390 and 520 metres (or 3-4 balls of 50g yarn). It is generally just over 3 balls.

The pattern suggests 66 cm for each side of square. The gauge indicated here is indicative, and could be adjusted. With this gauge the reduction starts once you have 102 sts on the needles.

For the hood, knit until there are 52 sts on the needles and cast off.
