If substituting yarn, look for something with a similar fiber content and weight. Light fingering to laceweight yarn is perfect for this pattern. Make sure the yarn you use has at least 50% animal fiber to stretch and block properly.

If using different colors, stick with similar tones to be safe, or have fun playing with contrast if you dare!
