NEEDLESSize A (for Main Fabric):
One 32" circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain Moss Stitch gauge listed
Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)
Size B (for Ribbing):
One 32" circular needle and one set of DPNs* two sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)
Size C [for Tubular Cast On (optional) and English Rib]:
One 32" circular needle and one set of DPNs* one size smaller than Size B needle(s) and/or size needed to obtain English Rib gauge listed
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)
*32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e. Sleeves).
Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. Please test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
