The pattern as listed in the book uses 2 skeins each of Natural Ecru (color A) and Natural Light Gray (color B). Yardage per skein may have changed since this pattern was published, as it differs from that given on ravelry and on the yarn company’s web site: www.sirri.fo. Before relying on the number of skeins, check with the yarn company.
