Materials
A cotton yarn could work really well with this stitch, particularly if you'd like to make washcloths or potholders. If you're thinking of a garment, you might like to consider a DK weight yarn. Check your manufacturer's band for hook size suggestions. You'll also need a pair of scissors and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
