US 1 (2.25 mm) DPNs or your preferred needles for socks

Needle sizes are suggestions only. Please use the needle size necessary for you to obtain gauge and/or create the fabric you desire.


32 sts and 40 Rounds = 4"/10cm

Both stitch and round gauge are important, but for this pattern the stitch gauge is the most important as we will rely more on measuring than round counting for length. Swatching in both colourwork and st st is also important – many knitters have different gauges between the two and you may need to use two different needle sizes, (one for colourwork and one for st st sections).


  • Stitch markers (optional)
  • Tapestry needle to weave in ends (and to insert lifeline for afterthought heel)
  • Two different colour waste yarns (afterthought heel only)
