To make this pattern you will need the For The Home Cording Yarn. It is a lovely and remarkably soft Medium weight yarn made from 50% Recycled Cotton, and 50% Polyester fibers. It’s the ideal yarn for garments, accessories, and home projects.

Furthermore, you will need a US size 6 double pointed knitting needle. That’s about4 mm 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.

Additionally, as you come to finish the pattern, you will have to weave in the yarn ends. This method will give your piece a nice and neat finish.
