Materials I used to knit this stitch: yarn: Camilla cotton (50g= 125m/ 1.76oz= 136 yards) a 4 mm needle


This is very high-quality cotton yarn. Mercerizing makes cotton yarn glossy and shiny, it keeps its shape and doesn’t shrink in the wash. The yarn becomes extremely durable and more resistant to mold. The wonderful depth of color is also characteristic of mercerized cotton. Since the fibers can absorb more color, the result is a much more intense and lasting color.

The color chart includes plenty of gorgeous colors, you just have to decide what color you like and get started. Here you can buy this yarn: http://bit.ly/3OxBqCQ
