Supplies You’ll Need For Magic Loop
All you need to begin learning Magic Loop is a 40- to 47-inch-long circular needle in a medium size, say, US size 7 or 8, and about 50 yards of worsted-weight yarn (for help with buying yarn and distinguishing yarn weights, see Chapter 14: Choosing the right yarn for your project).
If you don't already own a circular needle and you need to buy one, purchase a 47-inch-long needle, as you will be able to use this length for any project, including two-at-a-time.
36 inches is the shortest length of needle that can be used for Magic Loop, so if you already have this length at home, that's fine, but if you are buying new needles, the longer, the better (up to 47 inches).
