where can I get the patterned (A) yarn? I got the 3 different colors from Wool of the Andes website, but they don't offer the one with the speckled patterned (A) skeins. :-(
Thank you.

The first part of the pattern does not seem correct. If you do 4 fows of color A and then continue in stockinette, you will not get the 4 row garter in green. You will need to do 4 rows of garter in green and then change to the variegated yarn.
