About gauge: Please take the time to do a gauge swatch. This yarn will “blossom” when it is blocked. If you choose to use a different yarn, be sure to wash and block your swatch to confirm that your final gauge is correct. Please be aware that this pattern was designed with the unique attributes of this yarn in mind. Choosing a different yarn may result in a slightly different end product.
