Hi Indy!

The ballband should also say how many yards is contained in that 50g. of DB merino aran. If not, go to the Yarndex and find out.

The model sweater is using "Calmer", which has 177 yds. per skein. If you needed, for example, 4 skeins for your daughter's size...that would be 708 yds total in any yarn.

Lemme see, I'll check with the Yarndex. Yup, it has 86 yds per skein. So you have in your possession 860 yds. Probably more than enough to make a Tempting II for your DD!

Welcome to Tempting II KAL, Indygirl!! is a site that will tell you all the stats about almost any yarn! It is so way cool!
