View Full Version : Yarn for "Einstein Coat"?

12-26-2006, 12:50 PM
Has anybody here made Sally Melville's "Einstein Coat" using something other than the recommended wool/wool blend yarn? I'd LOVE to try to make my very first garment finally...this looks pretty straightforward--but it would be for my toddler (because it would go fast and I wouldn't get discouraged!), and I want it to be easily washable.

Have you read through the KAL thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9051)? There might be suggestions for subs in there.

I have the first three of Sally's books and I really like them. I did begin the Einstein coat for myself but I got bored with it a third of the way done. So I ended up ripping it out. I was using a wool blend.
