{How much yarn do I need?} The Weekender Sweater by Andrea Mowry

The Weekender is a worsted-weight pullover sweater pattern designed by Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits. I love all of the details this sweater has like faux seams and a modern drop shoulder with a super-comfy relaxed fit. This sweater would knit up beautifully in our Wooly Worsted merino yarn! I've planned out the details below.

Here is the sizing per the Ravelry page: 

Sizes: XS (S, M, L)XL, XXL, XXXL
Yarn Amounts: 10 (11, 12, 14)15, 16, 18 skeins of Wooly Worsted merino.

Wooly Worsted merino yarn is a gorgeous yarn with a great twist. The yarn is easy to knit and its wonderful stitch definition will pop all those design details in The Weekender. Choose from our beautiful array of 25 shades!

This sweater would look so pretty in Brushed Silver or maybe our earthy new Forest Fern. It would also be stunning in Red Velvet or you could go a bit brighter with rich Saffron. They’re all so perfectly fall!

If you have any questions about choosing a color you can always send me an email. Happy knitting!


Additional idea!

It’s been a few days since I wrote the original post about knitting The Weekender in Wooly Worsted and in the meantime I thought — what if we knit it in Fluffy Fingering with 2 strands held together for a marl effect? What if?!

Using Fluffy Fingering is a good idea for a couple of reasons!

  1. Two strands held together equals the gauge of worsted weight yarn.

  2. We can get the lovely tweedy marl effect that the original sweater has.

Look at all that texture! It really gives the sweater a lot of character. I got thinking about what colors of Fluffy Fingering would work together to create a beautiful, earthy, fall feel. Here are a few ideas I came up with.

I think I’m going to knit one using Wheat and Forest Fern! I’ve been really into greens this season and I think it would work up in such a cool way. Which one do you like? Take a look at the Fluffy Fingering yarn page to see all of the colors and develop your own marl!

Fluffy Fingering yarn amounts

The skein count will be different if you decide to marl the sweater than just knit it with Wooly Worsted. Here’s what I calculated:

Sizes: XS (S, M, L)XL, XXL, XXXL

Yarn: 915 (1015, 1130, 1265)1385, 1520, 1640 yds

Fluffy Fingering skeins: 5 (6, 6, 7)7, 8, 9 skeins each of Colors A and B for a total of 10 (12, 12, 14)14, 16, 18 skeins.

Are you in? Do you want to knit The Weekender with me?

Yay! This will be a more informal knit-with-me rather than an instructional knit-along. I’ll be posting updates in my Ravelry forum. Leave a comment there or below to let me know you’d like to knit it, too. I will get started on mine on Monday, October 1st.

Shop Fluffy Fingering yarn on this website OR better yet find a local yarn store that carries Ewe Ewe.

If you have any questions about choosing a color you can always send me an email. Happy knitting!

{How much yarn do I need?} Fern & Feather Sweater by Jennifer Steingass

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.

  Fern & Feather  sweater by Jennifer Steingass

Fern & Feather sweater by Jennifer Steingass

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

There are so many great color combinations you could put together to make this sweater your own. Here are a few examples that I found on Ravelry that would look great in a Wooly Worsted combination or two.

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. 

See Wooly Worsted yarn here. Get the pattern here. Visit a Ewe Ewe yarn shop.

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!
