We have spent many hours in the shop finding the correct number of balls, in the right colourway and dye lot for this pattern because it has been so popular (and rightly so!) We have a sample knitted and displayed in the shop - it is truly gorgeous.
It is an easy knit with that really shows off the King Cole Drifter Chunky which is self-striping, faux fair-isle yarn that is a sexy mixture of cotton/wool/acrylic. You could also try knitting this in King Cole Chunky Tweed, which is gorgeous yarn with 25% wool and a cheeky little fleck.
You will need 5mm and 6mm needles for this project.
