FAQ
This pattern call for two colors of yarn, what type of colorwork is used for this pattern?
The exact answer I’d prefer to leave a mystery. Here are the types of colorwork it most definitely is not: fair isle, double knitting, brioche, stranded, or illusion.

What colors of yarn would you suggest pairing together for this pattern?
Color 1 is darker. Color 2 is lighter.
Either C1 or C2 could be: Variegated within the same color family (green/blue, red/orange, pink/purple, blue/purple/ orange/yellow, etc), gradient, or speckled.
Either C1 or C2 could be: solid or semi solid.
Which is C1 and Which is C2 depends on which color is darker and which is lighter. See photos with yarn and pin pairings for ideas. Kits will be available by early-mid August.
