This pattern is written for the magic loop method (it is assumed that the stitches are divided evenly over two needles) but you can easily adjust it for the double pointed needles as well.

YARN

Novita 7 veljestä (100g = 218 yds / 200m).

You can replace it with any Aran weight wool and nylon blend yarn. Also, rough wool that has no nylon should be durable enough.

Visit my website for other yarn recommendations.
