Materials
King Cole Explorer Super Chunky yarn (80% acrylic/20% wool, 3.5 oz/100 g/87 yd/80 m) – 2 skeins in 4304 Hawkins, or approximately 87 yd (80 m) in any super bulky weight yarn. PLEASE NOTE: I used exactly 1 skein of yarn for this project, so if your gauge is different than mine, you may run out before finishing. That’s why I recommend getting 2 skeins just in case.

US Size 13/9 mm knitting needles, or size needed to obtain gauge. (Use straight needles to knit flat and seam, or use double pointed or circular needles to knit seamlessly in the round.)

US Size 15/10 mm knitting needles, or size needed to obtain gauge. (Use straight needles to knit flat and seam, or use double pointed or circular needles to knit seamlessly in the round.)
