I am going to make this sweater (http://www.chicknits.com/catalog/twist.html) and am in the process of testing yarns now (I'm sensitive to wool, but want wool..lol). Anyway, I was just looking at the site again and saw link on this page that says "yarn list" so I clicked it. (The link is under the picture.) Wow! They list all kinds of yarns appropriate for this and a couple other sweaters! Some are expensive, some are the kind you can get in Michaels or Hobby Lobby! How cool is that! I wish all pattern makers would do that so we don't have to go through the frustration of figuring out what will sub if we are allergic to wool, or on a budget or whatever.

Kudos to Chic Knits! :thumbsup:

EVERY pattern should be required BY LAW to do that with the yarn requirements!!

That IS cool! Thanks!

Oh that's good. A few knitty patterns give sub suggestions, but not many others do at all.

Twist is a great looking sweater, but it would take me forty-five years to knit it. I know you'll be faster!

I'm dying to see what shade of red you choose, it's my favorite color.

That is very cool! I wish more patterns did that. Now that you have pointed that out, I will look for it!

I agree, Ingrid! This has bothered me ever since I first started knitting.

That's a beautiful sweater, Jan!!! I can't wait to see it completed. :woohoo:

I totally agree with Ingrid. It should be mandatory that every pattern have a yarn list like that. Kudos to Chic Knits!! :yay:

What a gorgeous sweater. It will look wonderful in red. A great idea on the yarn, I agree every pattern should have that included.

I totally agree w/ Ingrid. Let's start by submitting it to our legislators.. nothing else is going on in DC!
