Materials:
Yarn: 150-400 yds fingering-weight yarn (amount of yarn needed depends on length of cuff – 200 yds are needed for a pair of crew-length socks). If working two socks at one time, separate yarn into two balls of equal yardage
Gauge: 7 sts/in in St st
Needles: Circular needle(s) OR set of DPNs, in whatever size required for YOU to obtain gauge. I use US #2 (2.75 mm). What kind of needles you require depends on how you prefer to knit in the round. I prefer magic loop, which requires one circular needle, 47 inches long.
Notions: Stitch markers; tapestry needle, scissors.
