Gauge: 18 sts & 28 rows =10 cm square measured over stockinette stitch on largest needles, using Yarn A or B (2 strands of yarn held together)
This pattern uses one strand of lace weight yarn and one strand of fingering or sport weight yarn held double and knitted together for an equivalent of light DK weight yarn
Yarn NOTE: The striped version is worked using two strands of yarn held together. Yarn A is two strands of black held together, one strand in each yarn; Yarn B is two strands of ivory held together, one strand in each yarn. Therefore, you will need 4 separate yarns.
YARN REQUIREMENTS are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.
345 (440, 520, 620, 695, 805) m fingering weight yarn in each of four yarns (two colors each in two yarns) or in each of two colors in dk weight yarn
-- OR --
695 (880, 1040, 1245, 1390, 1610) m sport - dk weight yarn if omitting stripes
If using a fingering weight held double for a solid cardigan, you will need this amount for each of two fingering weight yarns, which will knit at approximately sport weight when held double.
We suggest using Shibui Knits yarn - Cima and Twig, Silk Cloud.
