- Crochet hook (12 mm)
- LED lights chain (approx. 10 meters)

Remember to use LED lights because they do not heat up, which reduces the risk of fire and also saves electricity.
It is also important to note that you will not be able to wash the rug, so if you are using white wool, you may want to think about a suitable location for it before you start.
