Q&A with kimstady43131
Could you pleSe tell me if there is another yarn I can use instead of Patons classic woo?
In my stash I havenerino wool. WIll this work?
Since I had never made a sweater, I did not want to spend a lot of money on yarn. I found a look-a-like yarn at Hobby Lobby (Crafter's Secret). It looks like the same yarn in the picture, but is a little on the scratchy side. But I didn't feel the stress of spending a forture on a project I might not finish. But I did finish it!
Can I get the pattern for the knee length weekender sweater? I already know how to knit and I knit well. I li
I would guess you would just measure from the top of your shoulder to the desired length and knit the back to match that and then it would be easy to make the adjustments for the fronts because we are counting rows not inches to the start of shoulder shaping. The added rows would be in the back before the shoulder shaping.
As Linda asked, is just the pattern available for purchase? I don't need a class or a kit. I only need the pattern. Would love to make your lovely cardigan, but am on a very limited budget and can't afford to pay for the class when all I need is the pattern.
I think it is listed under Caddie's name in Ravelry.
Could you recommend another yarn to use besides "Wool" .?
I am at best an intermediate knitter. So I don't feel that I can answer that question accurately. I used a very cheap acrylic yarn in this sweater, because I have never made a sweater and didn't want to invest in an expensive yarn until I knew more of what I was doing. The sweater has turned out beautifully, so I think that any yarn, that you can achieve the correct gauge and you love would work.
