Besides the Main Color, a few yards of a contrasting yarn are also required for the cast-on and the Herringbone Braid at the top, as well as the edge of the thumb.
The pattern assumes the knitter has never worked the technique of Twined Knitting before. Explicit directions are given, including photos and Theory Boxes, garment directions, pattern charts, and a list of abbreviations and a Reading List.
There is a pattern for a matching twined hat here, as well as a twined hat kit here of Brooklyn Tweed yarns.
