Okay. I’m signing up for Hildie’s Year of the Sweater KAL, and for my first project I’ve chosen the Donna pattern from Magknits.
I want to keep the price per skein down, naturally -the more I save, the more projects I can knit! I also have issues with elastic in yarns (frequently causes me skin rashes), so the Lana Grossa “Point” yarn used in the pattern is a no-go for me.
In looking for substitutes for the worsted-weight Point yarn (cotton/elastic), I found the following:
Knitwerx carries “Oasis” (cotton/linen), in varigated.
Knitpicks carries “Merino Style” (wool), in many solid colors.
My question is which one would have the most stretch, and which is the best choice overall for a spring look?
