Needles and notions

Pair of straight needles OR 24" / 60cm or 32" / 80cm circular needle in the size recommended for your yarn.

If your yarn doesn't recommend a needle size we suggest using US 11 / 7–8mm needles for chunky, US 15–17 / 10–12mm needles for super chunky, and US 19 / 15mm needles for jumbo weight yarns.
