• Colors should be solid, semi-solid, tonal, or lightly speckled. Some of the stitch patterns and colorwork in this design could be obscured by variegated yarns.
• Each section of the pattern uses 2 of the 3 colors, so choose yarns that look good in pairs and have enough contrast to show off colorwork.
• Color A should be the darkest color, then color B, and color C should be the lightest.
• Single-ply or multi-plied yarns are both acceptable.
