Besides your target earbuds, you need a few other items to make this project happen.
- the finest you can get. I used some fingering lambswool I recycled from a thrift store sweater (Great info on recycling sweaters is available here
). It's okay to use pure wool, since this won't ever get washed. Sock yarn would be great.
- smaller is better! I used my finest double-pointed set from KnitPicks: 2mm in diameter. You'll need four needles.
(pictured at Step 5). This project has to be stitched shut, so a good needle is essential. Try to find a thin one with a blunt point and large eye, usually sold as "tapestry" needles.
(optional, pictured at Step 3). With such small yarn and a tiny first loop, a good small hook can be helpful for casting on.
