To make this pattern you will need the Chenille Appeal Yarn. It is a beautiful and remarkably soft medium-weight yarn made from 100% polyester fibers. It’s the ideal yarn for garments, accessories, and home projects.

Furthermore, you will need a US size 7 Circular knitting needle. That’s about 4.5mm if you prefer to use the metric system.


You can use the simpler long-tail cast-on method instead of the provisional cast-on. The long-tail cast-on is probably the most popular of all the cast-on methods. It is suitable for many types of knitting projects.

We have an illustrated tutorial for the long-tail cast-on if you want to learn it. You can find this tutorial here: Learn How to Do A Long-Tail Cast on.

Finally, as you come to finish the pattern, you will have to bind it off, which gives your fabric a smooth, attractive edge.
