Yarn: Ideally six colors or more colors of fingering weight yarn; 10-12 yards of each color. More colors will allow for more choice and experimentation. Shetland wool is my favorite because of the fantastic fiber and the amazing array of colors. We want to have a selection of dark colors and light colors.
Needles: Your preferred needle for working small diameter pieces in the round, US3 [3.25mm] dps or long circular needle for magic loop. Stitch markers and tapestry needle. Alternately, you can use thicker yarn with needle size to match. This is a good color lesson for stash busting, so surround yourself with your stash!
Pattern: Pincushion Pattern will be available on Ravelry late April.
