You won’t be feeling off-kilter after working this fun knit, in two or three colors. Mesh lace short-row sections and lots of squishy garter stitch make this a fun-to-knit AND wear piece.

Regarding which color to use for A or B, it doesn’t really matter - in my first one, I used the “lighter-brighter” as color A, and in my second, I used the “lighter-brighter” as color B. You use both pretty much equally, so really whichever you grab first :)

If you’re doing a 3-color version, you’ll be subbing color C for color B in the final clue, so color A will be the most dominant in the FO.

Yarn: Approximately 620 yards fingering-weight yarn total, split between two colors as follows. Color A: 310 yards. Color B: 310 yards. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Yaski Fingering, colorways Shoqua (color A) and Ochroid (color B) AND Winter Blues (color A) and Boysenberry (color B). You can also make a three-color version, substituting color C for color B in Clue 4 (you’ll need approx. 90-100 yards of color C).
Notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle.
