NOTE: Colorwork tends to pull your knitting in, which is why both a #2 and a #3 needle are recommended for this pattern. If you get gauge using a #2 in plain stst, you will most likely need to switch to a #3 needle while working the colorwork portions to maintain gauge. The directions reflect this assumption. If you have never worked with two colors at once before and are uncertain how your gauge is likely to change, it is highly recommended that you swatch in both plain and two-color stst.
