Materials and tools
•1 skein of grey fuzzy yarn – weight DK / 8 ply (11 wpi), 175 g per 100 g skein for main parts. I used Nazar-rus ‘Swan’s Down’ (100% polyamide), 170 m per 100 g – 1 skein.
•Some Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi) yarn, 174 yards (159 meters) per 50 gr skein. Split in 2 threads. I used – Yarn Art JEANS (55% cotton, 45% acrylic) 160 m per 50 g skein.
