fingering weight / We recommend a fiber with elasticity for this pattern since it is designed to fit close to the body. The sample uses CoBaSi by skacel, a unique cotton with elastic. A soft wool would be another option. Cotton without elastic is not recommended due to the lack of resilience. Quantity given is approximate, may vary based on yarn used.
