Notions: 2 stitch markers, 1 locking stitch marker, scrap yarn, cable needle (optional), blocking wires and T-pins (optional but recommended).

Notes: Kupala is knit from the bottom up in the round to the underarm. The front and back are then worked separately in rows to the top of the shoulder straps. The twisted fringe is knit as you go without breaking the yarn. The V-neck is finely integrated into the ornamental twisted stitch pattern.
