For this Wavy Stitch Draw Bag project you will need:

HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US
YARN: 2 skein of worsted weight yarn, 4 ply US, 10 ply AU  If you want to make it 3 colors then grab 2 skeins that go well together.

NOTE: This will show you how to work the pattern from the beginning of the round to the end, but this can leave a seam, so once you learn the pattern, if your advanced, I recommend making your color changes in a different place as to not leave a seam.
