Shown in:
MC: 5 skeins Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool Worsted in Midnight Lake
CC: 5 skeins House of A La Mode Dreamy DK in Strawberry Rhubarb

Note: Shepherd’s Wool is a light worsted weight yarn, and therefore much closer to DK weight. Feel free to substitute DK weight for the Main Color, but be sure to knit a gauge swatch to ensure proper fit and drape of fabric. Heather from House of A La Mode creates such fabulous yarn, and you can find it at Happy Knits, and Do Ewe Knit?! Strawberry Rhubarb is a specialty color that Heather created for this project, look for it later this year!

Needles: 40” long US 7 / 4.5mm circular needle. Circular needles are used for brioche knitting and to accommodate large number of stitches.

Tools: tapestry needle, row counter, 6 stitch markers for dividing sections / borders
