This would be great for your second project of working in the round. You will need to know how to work in the round and then transition onto DPN (double pointed needles).
You will need:
2 skeins of Darn Good Yarn’s Mulberry Silk Yarn - Our "Lux Adventure" Silk - get some here
size 7 circular needles with a 14 inch cord
Set of size 7 DPN’s
Personally, I used some wood beads and made 2 white tassels and 2 red tassels for embellishments for a vintage world look.
