Note from Ed. At least two sources display the yarn/color amounts incorrectly and in different ways. In The Best of Lopi, the layout makes it appear Fannar needs four colors when the fourth applies only to Rosa. In Reynolds Lopi Vol 17, the yarn amounts are listed for five sizes instead of only four.
