Hi I am new to the forum and to be honest google has never picked this site up so grateful I may get some help in the future with my projects.
I have pulled back some mohair sweaters for the second time. Its about 40 odd years since I first knitted a sweater and cardigan and years later I pulled them both back again.
I have completed project one and now the second but doubtful whether I will have enough wool.
My story goes like this.
I am following a mohair pattern which I am confident is OK, size, wool, needles 5mm. The pattern is in my head but having already knitted project 1 I think j will be OK
Red mohair for the front (but if I think I have enough for the back I will knit back with red mohair too. But that is my problem
Does anyone know how much mohair I will use for the back? My size is xl if that makes any difference bust 40 I presume.
I am following the rowan "candy" pattern
Its not easy getting patterns in Spain hence this one on the internet. I won't be following it as per the pattern its just the basic....forget the stripes too ljust need to know roughly how much wool I would need for the back. If its more than I am left with the red mohair I will have to knit the back with black mohair.
Thanks for your help I anticipation.anne
