Me again... One day I'll knit a whole thing without help!

I may be really silly here and missing the obvious, but how many skeins of yarn does this call for?

At first I thought it was 120 yards - but thats actually only 1 skein.

Has anyone knitted this already? It'd be the 40 inch chest I'd be knitting.

Thanks! :grrr:

Looks like 6 skeins so...(doing math) 720 yards. :)

:hug:

under materials its says
MATERIALS

GGH Mystik [54% cotton, 46% viscose; 120 yd/110m per 50g skein];
color: Ivory (02); 4[5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6] skeins


I added the red for the skeins... you should use 6 skeins but I'd buy 7 to be safe :happydance:

Oh Dear! :grrr:

I was so hung up on the difficult numbers I ignored the obvious!!!

I thought those numbers were related to the colour!

It's too late at night for reading!

Thank you guys!

LOL--you're welcome! :) We've all had those moments.

I love your user name, by the way. My name's Jennifer, and most people call me Jen. As a joke, I had a professor who proclaimed "Then I shall call you 'Niffer!'" I smile every time I see your name here. :)

I'm glad I made someone smile with it - my usual web-name was taken when I registered on here but I've yet to find anyone using it!

Niffer is always option 2 as when my sister was very young she'd call me jed-niffer like it was two words!
