  • YARN: Use a worsted weight yarn such as Cascade 220. You need approximately 5 yards (4.6 metres) of the main colour, and 1.5 yards (1.4 metres) of the contrasting colour for each sweet. Use up your leftover partial skeins!
  • NEEDLES: Use a set of four or five short, lightweight 3.25 mm (U.S. no. 3) double-pointed needles. I recommend 5” (13 cm) bamboo needles.
  • Very small amount of stuffing such as wool batting, polyester fibrefill, scrap yarn, or cotton balls.
  • yarn needle
  • scissors
  • 1 stitch marker (a loop of yarn will suffice)

Detailed pattern includes seven colour photographs of the project in progress and two colour photographs of the finished items.
