Notions: Crochet hook and scrap yarn for provisional cast-on, 9 stitch markers, tapestry needle, 2 DPNs in same size as gauge needle

Notes: Rei is started from the top down with a provisional cast-on. After the body is complete, pleats are worked along the live stitches and the bottom hem is finished with 1x1 twisted rib. The provisional cast-on at the top edge is unzipped and placed onto the needle, and pleats are worked across these stitches. Once this is complete, a few rounds of garter stitch are worked and then twisted rib completes the top edge.
