snip....(2)One large ball of worsted or sport yarn in one color for the yoke and sleeves etc.
(3)One large ball of a variegated worsted or sport yarn for the bottom half of the sweater.
What do you mean by 'large ball'? Can you give approx. yardage?
l would like to have a go they are very pretty
Walmart sells large balls of yarn -- in canada they sell for 8.98 each and they have them in knitting worsted and sport weight yarn. I am sorry I don't have a label. If anyone else has gone and purchased some - would you post? I will drop into walmart on my way home from my little holiday and check out the yardage and weight. two of these (one plain color and one variegated will be more than you will need. Sorry I don't have the label. Shirley

Is it possible to use a variety of stash for the bottom half so people can use from their stash?
is it possible to use stash for the bottom?
yes it is -- you could make stripes of different colors or maybe 3 or 4 colors that go well together. you could make thick and thin strips -- remember they will be vertical. Or if you really wanted to you could use one color that goes nicely with the yoke color - although I would prefer it if we all use a few colors at least on the bottom portions of the sweater.
