My roommate and I each want to make one of these sweaters from Stitch ‘n’ Bitch Nation, but we don’t know what kind of yarn to use. Any suggestions? The gauge in the pattern says 26 st = 4" in clover lace st (on #3). I was thinking about trying Shine from Knit Picks, which lists its gauge as 6 st = 1" on US #3-5. I’m thinking that would be pretty close (that’s 24 st for 4" in st stitch, so it could theoretically be the same).
Who has used Shine? Is it easy enough to work with?
And has anybody made this sweater before? Was it difficult?
