I fell hopelessly in love with the yarn used in this project. It’s cotton. It’s a fine weight. It has beautiful long colorways of self-striping. Naturally, I purchased the yarn again (at the above link). When I started using a different color, though, it was variegated, not self-striping. As it turns out, I actually preferred the variegated in my new project here: Entwined Helix Scarf.
I wrote to the yarn manufacturer because, if you are doing this project in the recommended yarn, I didn’t want you to be disappointed, if you happen to choose one of the variegated instead. Here is the response so you will know which are variegated and which are self-striping:
Thank you for your inquiry! Most of the line has long color changes. However, the newest colors, 7624/Carnival, 7616/Breeze, 7642/Jazz, 7625/Santa Fe, and 7654/Lagoon, all have the short color changes you are now encountering. That was indeed on purpose and will remain consistent.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
