So you know I love this yarn and I think it does work for the pattern when I've seen it in real life but I want you to know how much better this pattern is when you can see the stitches up close. They'll show up way better on a plain, mid coloured yarn in a photo than they do this light colour mottled yarn - in real life it doesn't matter so much, you can see and appreciate it but in this photo it disappears and I am sad! It's a sort of modern gansey style and I love love love it!!
The pattern is written for the Cottonsoft Candy which is interchangeable with the Cottonsoft DK and and the Cottonsoft Crush and Baby Crush but I'm also going to recommend the Drifter Subtle DK which is still a bit cottony but also warmer because of the wool and acrylic content (especially note that stunning Mustard colourway!).
