I have two skeins of Wool of the Andes in my stash. The pattern calls for 220 yards of yarn which is exactly the amount of WoA I have. Has anyone made this pattern? Does it take the entire 220 yards? I'm scared to start and end up a few yards short.

Thank you!

I'm not sure I can be much help. I just made this bag -- using WOTA no less, but I made a striped version in four colors, so I'm not really sure how much yarn I used.

I think since the yarn called for in the pattern and WOTA are both worsted weight, as long as you match the gauge for the pattern, you should have enough.

I have not made this bag - however, it says it takes one skein of cascade 220, which is 220 yards, so you *should* be ok.
