Yarn tips: The design uses a non-superwash merino wool, but you can easily knit this in another kind of fiber, depending on what you like. We’ll talk about how to adapt if you’re using superwash yarn (or something slippery like alpaca). The primary concern is you’ll want to knit with colors that have a reasonable amount of contrast, so be mindful and cautious about using colors that might bleed.
