US #1/2.25 mm needle(s) or size required to get gauge
This pattern is written to have the sts evenly divided on two needles. For this you could use Magic Loop, two 24-inch circulars, or, my personal favorite, three 16-inch circulars.
Knitting with three 16-inch circulars is accomplished very simply by holding 32 sts on each of two needles and working the sts with the third needle; it’s similar to using DPNs with the benefit of the flexible cord.
28.5 sts/46 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch
