Hi, I just have a quick question (I want to make sure I’m reading this right…) about a sweater I would like to try knitting… it’s http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/doreen/doreen.html
BERROCO AIR (50 grs), 7(8-9-10-11) balls #3142 Geothermal.
Straight knitting needles, sizes 10 and 11 OR SIZE TO OBTAIN GAUGE.
16” Length circular knitting needles, sizes 10 and 11.
1 St marker.
Does this mean I need at least 7 balls of yarn? Also, what kind of yarn would be similar to this (I don’t really think I want wool…) in preferably Lion Brand or Bernat (I know where to find these brands in town… lol)?
Here’s a description of the yarn they say to use:
FIBER: 78% Wool, 22% Nylon
BALL WEIGHT : 1.75 oz / 50 g
BALL LENGTH: 115 yds / 106 m
GAUGE: 3.25 sts = 1"/ 13 sts & 19 rows = 4" (10cm)
NEEDLE SIZE : 11 (US) / 8 mm
CARE: Hand wash in lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry.
Thanks so much!
