Yarn: Araucania Nature Wool Solids and Louet Gems Worsted
The pattern is a fun puzzle to knit but not so challenging that you need to sit alone to knit. The yarn is so soft and sproingy. It is an aran weight and has been discontinued but you can find skeins for sale on the Ravelry yarn page if you like the hues. The pattern calls for short rows and eyelets and then garter across the width. It went pretty quickly and is a very good size. I'll need to add measurements later as it is in Maine....
As a note of encouragement, this was such a fun knit and not taxing on the brain to knit while watching Netflix or hanging out with family. The pattern is detailed and has great instructions. It is a $6.00 digital download on Ravelry. I'm actually surprised that only 587 projects are listed on his pattern page. I will definitely knit this again.
