Note on Gauge: an exact gauge is less important for this project; however I would test the stitch pattern to make sure you are happy with the openness of the pattern. I have included my gauge below.
Gauge= 18.8 stitches over 4” in pattern or 6 sts per inch in stockinette blocked on a US#3.
Yarn substitutes: Any yarn weight can be used, adjust pattern in increments of 4 stitches to achieve desired width, adjusting needle size accordingly for desired openness of fabric
