Please note because this pattern originated in the States the pattern features Coats yarns only available overseas, but you can have a smiliar effect by substituting the yarns as follows...
The US yarns are 100% acrylic with a 17x23 tension. UK alternatives would be Patons Baby Fab Aran (19x25), though that is a bigger tension, Patons Eco Wool Chunky (16x22), Pompero (16x22), Rowan Pure Wool Aran (17x23), or Rowan Cashsoft Aran (19x25). Gauge is not essential on this project but it is important to do a gauge swatch if you are substituting yarn on a project.
