If you can’t find Lush, there are some alternatives. Vista and Crestone, both interchangeable themselves, would work well, as would Portland Tweed. If you would like to play with the size or gauge, look for Woodland (a little lighter) or Montera (a little heavier) to make those changes. But please remember the cardinal rule of knitting, always knit and measure out a gauge swatch! It’s the only path towards knits that fit.
Set of 4 double pointed needles (dpns) in size US 6 (4 mm) or size to obtain gauge.
Cable needle (cn)
20 sts and 28 rows = 4” in St st. Take time to save time, check your gauge.
