This pattern is about choices, choose your yarn: Any Worsted or Aran weight yarn or if you prefer, Any Sport weight yarn held double. I’ve written the pattern for 3 colors, one main color and two contrast colors. You could vary that easily…use only one contrast color or go crazy with 6 contrast colors! This is the perfect opportunity to use all those leftover, half balls you’ve got hanging around.

Two of my samples have ‘planned’ stripes, the other two are random stashbusting stripes! I love sorting my stash and pairing all the little odds & ends! This project is perfect for those remnants!

A few simple choices, endless options! No two will be alike!
