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

here is the proper link -- the other one I gave a few minutes ago isn't correct

If you enter it in the space at the top of your computer page and click the
arrow you should get it . Shirley

That is one reason why I suggested the walmart yarn as here in Canada the large balls are only $8.88 each so you can knit it for under $20.oo/ They wear well and look nice -- then if someone wants to put more expensive yarn into one, that is good, and they have an idea what they will finish with.

So don't be afraid to ask questions and write down what we do.
I would suggest you copy or save the posts if you can. 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?

***answer ****-

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.

Monday -- I just found one of the large balls from Walmart - one of you were
asking about them.

The one I have here is Red Heart sport light --1050 meters -1144 yards -
350 gms - 12.35 oz. Two of these will more than cover your sweater The worsted weight is different . don't have the amounts for it.

YOu can use either worsted weight (heavier sweater 5.5 mm (9)
or the sport -- 5 mm (8) needles - Shirley
sport weight use 5 mm needles or size 8
