hey all - I am wanting to knit two things but am wondering how much yarn I’ll need for each project.
First - I want to knit a pinwheel baby blanket - Round Baby Blanket Link
how many skeins do you think I would need for a baby size one?
also what type of yarn would you use? superwash wool? cotton? bamboo? blend? what type?
Second is a pinwheel sweater Elann Pinwheel Sweater
it calls for 8 skeins of elann.com Peruvian Highland Wool which is 50g / 109 yards per ball.
- however that isn’t a superwash wool is it? I’m thinking for a child’s sweater that superwash would be better?
what do you think?
or what yarn would you recommend for that pinwheel sweater.
oh and do you think it’d be difficult to come up with one that would fit inbetween the baby/toddler pattern and the adults pattern. I have girls ages 5 - 9 that would love them but they’d be too big for the baby pattern but too small for the adult pattern - any suggestions?
