SUGGESTED NEEDLES

Main Fabric: US 7/4.5 mm - 32”/80 cm to 40”/100 cm circular and pre- ferred needles for small circumference knitting (Magic Loop or DPNs)

Sleeve Fabric: US 8/5 mm - Preferred needles for small circumference (Magic Loop or DPNs) OPTIONAL - In my experience, I have found that most of us knit tighter when working small circumference (IE sleeves) than larger circumference (IE body). Therefore, I HIGHLY recommend checking your sleeve gauge to make sure it is has not tightened up too much, resulting in sleeves that will be too small. If your gauge has tightened, I recommend going up a needle size (or more) to continue in the gauge required for this sweater.

Ribbing: US 5/3.75 mm - 32”/80 cm to 40”/100 cm circular and preferred needles for small circumference knitting. You may want a longer cord of 40”/100 cm to 60”/150 cm for knitting the shawl collar.
(Use the needle size you need to achieve gauge, and size down 2 needle sizes for ribbing.)
