YARN
Indigodragonfly ROUSport 100% superwash merino; 398 m/328 yds per 100 g; 1 skein
Sample colours:
Spock Puppet (fingerless mitts)
Only the Exact Phrase I Used Was “Don’t”- Inara (mittens)

Yarn substitution:
Choose a yarn that is round, smooth, and even in texture. A 3-ply or 4-ply sport or heavy fingering will work well. The stitch pattern works best with a solid or semi-solid color.
