This pattern can be punched with your choice of yarns. Change the size, too, if you wish. I used variegated floss, mostly inexpensive, and some solid purples. Use the floss you have on hand. There is no wrong way! I do use weavers cloth and the best hoop I can find. I also use the largest punch needle and all 6 strands of floss. Thank you so much for looking at my pattern.
