DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Magnum by Cascade Yarns (100% Wool; 250g/123yds): 2 Skeins.
ALTERNATE YARN: Rasta by Malabrigo (100% Merino Wool; 150g/89 yds): 3 skeins. This single ply slightly felted yarn does not shed and is resistant to pilling as well.
ALTERNATE YARN: Bulky by Blue Sky Fibers (50% Alpaca / 50% Wool; 100g/45yd): 6 Skeins. This yarn has an amazingly soft hand and charming natural or pastel colors. Alpaca is very much like cashmere in its qualities of warmth and silkiness and is slowly taking up part of the market. If you haven't yet tried alpaca, now is the perfect opportunity to try this luxurious and beautiful yarn!
ALTERNATE YARN: Outer by Spud & Chloë (65% Superwash Wool / 35% Certified Organic Cotton; 100g/60yds): 4 Skeins. This hard working yarn is suprisingly soft and squishy and perfect for the stitch definition needed in this pattern. Pick a bold color to frame your face and pair with a neutral jacket for a stunning winter look.
