MATERIALS & TOOLS NEEDED
Yarn: Your choice, I used Bella Coco Crochet Super-Soft Chunky yarn which was an exclusive yarn found in my Crochet Society boxes.
Hook: Hook to match yarn and your desired gauge. I used a 5.5mm. Please note, this is quite a dense and sturdy stitch. If your project requires your work to have more drape, you may wish to go up a few hook sizes to allow for that. I’d always recommend making a swatch before starting a project.
