I used King Cole 4 Big Value ply in graphite and plum and Stylecraft Life 4 ply in black.
I really enjoyed this project as the pattern was easy to follow and gave clear instructions. It also comes with a chart for those who prefer to use this type of pattern. There was enough of a challenge as each row was different to the last but once you had memorised the pattern repeat, it was straight forward to complete. It was a nice project to do in the evening in front of the TV.
