US 5 (3.75 mm) 16” (40 cm) and 32” (80 cm) circular needle and DPNs (or longer circular needle for magic loop) for neck, body and sleeve ribbing.
US 6 (4 mm) 24” (60 cm) and 32” (80 cm) circular needle and DPNs (or longer circular needle for magic loop) for body and sleeves.
Gauge: 20 sts x 28 rows = 4” (10 cm) square in Stockinette stitch on larger needle after blocking.

What skills you should have: You should be comfortable knitting and purling in the round on double points and circular needles
What skills you will learn: short row shaping, color stranding, circular yoke construction
