Pattern Notes
PLEASE NOTE: the colors you use should be high contrast. Also, if you are using variegated yarn, only use it for color A, then use a high contrast solid or tonal for B. Using a variegated for color B will not work in every instance I’ve seen. Your colorwork will completely get lost.

The gauge uses a heavy fingering weight yarn at a looser gauge. La Jolla blooms and fulls beautifully when soaked so you end up with a drapey fabric at a looser gauge than is typical for fingering. Be sure to block your swatch. Lighter fingering weight yarns may not work. Sport and dk weight yarns may work beautifully, but please check gauge.

This pattern uses 2-4 skeins of Fingering weight yarn. Sample was Knitted using 3 skeins of Baah LaJolla.
