Yarn substitution suggestion?

I want to make this from knitty, but I’m not sure what kind of yarn to use.

Preferrably something that’s somewhat inexpensive, but not itchy. I’m looking for a dark purple or blue color, I guess. I’m not a big fan of brown.

Thank in advance for your suggestions. I’m still pretty new to this, so I’m not familiar with all my yarn options out there!

Andean Silk might be very nice!

And I love that sweater!

I :heart: that yarn!! It’s so yummy!! I really do need it to be machine washable, though. Is that yarn the same weight and everything as in the pattern?

I just love that dark blue!!

Yeah, it’s the same weight.

I know what you mean about wanting machine washable. But really, don’t you want just ONE deliciously sensuous sweater that you can fondle even as you clean it?! :inlove:

:roflhard: “fondle” as I clean?? hahahaha!! :thinking: I may have to rethink that…

The sweater IS called Tempting, after all… :eyebrow:

Where did you get your avatar? I need one, but I don’t want to put up a pic of myself… :oops:

Oh dear. The link is here in the forum SOMEWHERE…I’ll see if I can find it!

Here ya go. You’ll have to do some image re-working, but it’s worth it!
