2 hanks of Karabella is the yarn originally used - this is now discontinued. Any bulky gauge yarn of 3.5 sts to the inch is a great substitute.
Friends of mine are having a baby girl in a couple of months & i wanted to make them a sweater! Using KPS pattern 214 as a base, i added a 4x4 cable on the front and back - and a 2x2 cable on each sleeve. Fun and quick! Plus, this yarn is machine washable and gets softer with every wash....yummy!
