Your double knit project will be elegant with integrated ends and smooth sides. Bring with you: 1) yarn of your choice, two main colors; 2) two needles (or one circular or long loop) of any size to create the tension you like; 3) a crochet hook for hiding ends and fixing errors; and 4) a tapestry needle for binding off.
