How much yarn do I need for the Klaralund Sweater?
I have 10 balls of Paton's SWS in plum that I hope will make gauge for the Klaralund sweater in one of the NORO books.

Can anyone tell me how much yarn I need for an ex-small, small and medium sweater?

TIA!

XS, S , M takes 400, 450, 500 g of Silk Garden. 50g of SG is 108 yards. So that woud be a bit over 800, 900, 1000 yards.

I've found that if you use a little larger needle and make a smaller size, you can knit a sweater with slightly/somewhat less yardage than recommended.
