As always, this pattern can be made with virtually any thickness of yarn,hook size, and color, but I recommend a medium or worsted weight with a size H hook in a variation of blue, purple, or green.
This is my own original design so please respect my copyrights - you can link back to me or use the pattern for personal use but please don't mass distribute!
