Picking the best yarn: approximately 300 yards per 100 grams of your favorite sport weight yarn, given the summer appeal and light weight nature. The design works up in 77% main color and 23% contrasting color. Not into stripes? It would also look smashing in a single-skein gradient, semi-solid, tonal, or single color too!
