- Light Weight Yarn (#3) I used about 100 yards. In the sample shown, I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Style yarn
- Metal Tape Measure – Tape should be ¾” wide (use an old one that you can re-purpose/upcycle if possible)
- Tape – electrical tape is best, but duct tape or packaging tape will also work
- Tin Snips or Old Scissors (cutting may dull the edges so don’t use your best pair)
- Measuring Tape, Scissors, Yarn Needle
