It's a simple pattern that's really cool! You can use silk or cotton yarn! (I used cotton, Lion Brand Cotton, Candy Colors)! I'm still working on it though! The circular needles are pretty easy to use!:happydancing:
I used Lion Chenille Thick and Quick to make a bag for my not SIL. I couldn't find a black velvet one for her RenFair pirate costume, so decided to make one. I did it on size 8s so the stitches would be snug.
