10” / 25 cm height
Width can be easily adjusted by casting on additional stitches, a multiple of 22 sts is recommended to keep the distribution of the vertical stripes the same.
DK weight yarn in two colours
150 yds / 137 m of main colour (red in the sample)
110 yds / 100 m of contrast colour (black in the sample)
3.5 mm / size 4 dpns or circular knitting needle, whatever your preferred method for knitting in the round is.

The pattern might look difficult at first glance, but it isn’t really. Once you have set up the pattern, you will most likely be able to work on this without referring to the pattern all the time, because the colours align in a very obvious way which will make knitting rather intuitive.
