Oh okay. I read it as not being there right one. Was the "pattern" written by someone other than the designer? If do it may be tough to find. Maybe you could rewrite it yourself.

Size 8 or 9 needles and a smooth light solid colored yarn in worsted weight (#4). By smooth I mean a plain yarn... No novelty or fuzzy yarns. Light solid colors make it easier to see your stitches...
