The best alternative: Smooth, lightweight yarns such as tencel/viscose or bamboo would work nicely with this pattern. Make sure to make a gauge swatch first, to see if your gauge fits and whether your yarn stretches as intended, when washed and blocked.
Another alternative: You can use cotton for this project, although the look might turn out a bit different, as cotton is more rigid than silk. Make sure to make a gauge swatch first, to see if your gauge fits and whether your yarn stretches as intended, when washed and blocked.
This pattern generally contains very few advanced techniques, it offers detailed explanations of the entire process, and is generally clear and easily legible to all.
The pattern does contain abbreviations to certain words (k = knit, p = purl etc.) with a guide explaining the meaning of every abbreviation.
