“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.” – Rosalia de Castro

• US Size 5 (3.75 mm) 40” (101 cm) or longer circular needle (or size needed to obtain gauge)
• Stitch markers (several removable markers will be necessary)
• Tapestry needle

Gauge: 23 sts = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette st before blocking, 18 sts = 4” (10 cm) after strong blocking (The fabric needs to have plenty of stretch to block out the body pattern in the end.)
