    I recommend getting the full yardage amounts to be safe regardless of which size you knit so you have the most flexibility.

    47” / 120cm US 5 / 3.75mm circular or size needed to obtain gauge. You can start with a shorter circular cord length, but a long circular needle will be more comfortable throughout the project.

    Sporty Merino is a custom spun yarn by Hedgehog Fibres available exclusively through Stephen & Penelope for 2016. Sporty Merino is a non-superwash merino with incredible spring and bounce. Due to the fluffy voluminous nature of the soft merino, it feels like a heavy fingering/sport weight yarn even though it has 400yds / 366m per 100g. The stitches bloom and fill space more than slick superwash yarns resulting in a more cohesive and “woolly” fabric. Sporty Merino produces amazing crisp stitch definition.

    You can also use standard fingering weight yarns for this project.
