Changing yarns, or substituting the yarn is easy when you know what you need. In this series I talk about a knitting or crochet pattern and how much Ewe Ewe yarn you'd need to complete it.
Wow! Meet Fern & Feather. This beautiful sweater designed by Jennifer Steingass for Knit.Love.Wool. is simple yet breathtaking. Fern & Feather is a seamless sweater with a yoke highlighted inspired by nature. Here's how much Wooly Worsted yarn you'd need to make this sweater:
Sizes: Bust: 30.75 (33, 35.5, 39, 41) (43.5, 46.25, 49, 51.5) (54.25, 57.25, 59.5) inches
Wooly Worsted Yarn Amounts:
MC: 8 (9, 10, 11, 12) (13, 14, 14, 15) (16, 17, 17) skeins
CC: 1 (1, 2, 2, 2) (2, 2, 2, 2) (2, 2, 2) skeins
A Wooly Worsted yarn color combo of Saffron and Vanilla would be great. Or maybe Charcoal and Brushed Silver?
You could make this sweater in Sky Blue with a hint of Red Poppy Wooly Worsted on top. Or try Brushed Silver with Lavender detail.
Remember that yarn amounts are never exact. Each knitter has their own tension when holding the yarn and that can change the final yardage amounts. We come close with our skein numbers but it's always smart to grab an extra ball or two just in case!
