RS stands for right side of work, the yarn is self striping and cotton yarn can be purchased at WalMart, Hobby Lobby, Michaels or most anyplace that sells yarn.

Where can I purchase this yarn?

Sounds easy can't wait to try it.

IS there 2 colors used alternated or variaged yarn ? What is the (RS) suppose to be????Where is it???????Knit Version ????Email me back ?????

I noticed your question has been on here unanswered for years, over a decade actually, the yarn is a self striping yarn, so its a single skein with the colors in it. RS means right side in knitting. the knit version is on this page immediately under the crochet version, it is a short 3 line paragraph, so easily missed. This website hosts the patterns, so they are not going to email you back answers to your questions, that's why they have been on here for so long without answers. Hope this helps someone, even as late as it is, Happy knitting.
