This project is great for beginning knitters, although you do need to know how to knit, purl, and do a K2TOG decrease. You do not need to know how to knit in the round as this project is worked on straight needles and seamed. 

Materials needed:

• 1 skein jumbo size (size 7) yarn or 1/2 pound wool roving (I love the yarn from coffeeandblankets.com or wool roving split to half the thickness. Look for seasonal chunky yarns in the fall & winter, too.)
• size US 50/25 mm straight knitting needles
