To make this pattern you will need the Bernat Blanket Yarn. It is a beautiful and remarkably soft Super Bulky weight yarn made from 100% polyester fibers. It’s the perfect yarn for Garments, Accessories, and home projects.

Furthermore, you will be needing a US size 11 circular or double-pointed knitting needle. That’s 8 mm needles if you prefer to use the metric system.

Techniques Used

You will be using the k2tog knitting decrease when you make this project. The k2tog or knit two together is a basic right slanting decrease that is quite common throughout knitting patterns.

If you’re not familiar with the k2tog decrease, we have an illustrated, step-by-step tutorial for it that you’ll surely find helpful. You can find this tutorial here: Learn How to Make a Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog).

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.
