Techniques used: Wrap and Turn Short Rows, Striping colorwork, 2 different lace stitch patterns, garter tab cast on, and M1L, M1R
I have included video tutorials for: Garter tab cast on, M1R, M1L, and the stretchy bind off.

Yarn: You will need 440 yards of each color (C1 & C2), or 880 yards total. I recommend that you use at least 2 colors for this pattern, it is written with 2 in mind so some of the details will not show up if you only use one. That being said, this is your project so you can use as many colors as you want, make it your own.
