Needles in your preferred way to work small rounds (1 circular for magic loop, or 2 circulars for 2 needles method, or a set of DPN). 3. Printout of the graphs from the class handout. 4. Pencil for charting. 5. 4 or more charts you want to work with; it can be your own or from a knitting dictionary (can be colorwork charts, texture stitches, or other singular motifs) • Homework- With either one of the yarns, CO 40 sts for cuff, join in round.
