Just wanted to add my 2 cents about yarn choice:
used KnitPicks SHINE worsted
. It sells for $2.49 per 75 yd
However, KnitPicks SHINE sport weight
sells for $2.49 for 110 yd skein.
sport has 27 colors
to choose from and it's washable/tumble dry...and that's always a good thing!
I'd personally recommend a sport weight yarn. Totally.
SHINE sport gives more yardage for the $2.49.
