Size #6 needle You may find it more comfortable to use a circular needle instead of a straight needle to accommodate the large number of the stitches at the cast on. You can switch to a straight needle as you decrease and have fewer stitches. You do not need a circular needle for the neck or armhole. Please remember that your needle size may vary after knitting your gauge.
Stitch holders– Only needed if you will be seaming the shoulders with the 3 needle bind off method.
Stitch Markers/Safety pins- you will only need 5 or so of each.
