NEEDLES

Size A (for Single-Color Rounds of Main Fabric)

  • One each 24″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
  • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size B (for Two-Color Rounds of Main Fabric)

  • One each 24″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* one size larger than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)

Due to significant variance between knitters, your colorwork fabric should be swatched prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether or not this needle size should be larger, smaller, or equal to Size A. Please read about Speed-Swatching for Circular Knitting (see Special Techniques).

Size C (for Ribbing)

  • One each 16″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* one size smaller than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

  • One each 16″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* two sizes smaller than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 3¼ mm (US 3)

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the need size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.

*32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).
