Note: The yarn totals above include a 10% buffer to allow for differences in knitting style and yarn composition and for your swatch.
The actual yarn used for the pattern sample (Width 2, Length B) was a total of 1820 yards (1664 meters) of Knitcraft and Knittery Fingering Weight Corriedale (100% Corriedale, non-superwash) in colorway Mother Knows Best.
For yarn substitutions, choose a yarn that is plied, springy, and has good stitch definition. A solid, semi-solid, or tonal colorway is recommended to allow the cable details to stand out well.
While the sample uses fingering weight yarn, this pattern would adapt well to sport, DK, or worsted.
