Hi! I'm wanting to knit this:
but I'm realizing that all the yarns I like to work with will be too much money for me to chance on a garment. I have knit a few,...let's call them sweaters, in the past and they have been miserable failures. Now, I'm a better knitter now and know the importance of gauge and needle size now but there's really no guarantee. I don't want to sink $100+ on a sweater that might be horrible once it's done. That being said, I don't want to waste my time on a yucky cheap yarn either.
SO,...What affordable yarns in DK weight are out there? I'm looking to spend about $50 on this. I need about 1300 yards. What would work well for this pattern? I'm sick of socks and scarves and want a challenge for the summer. I really like natural fibers but they don't have to be 100%.
Thanks for your help!!
