Anyone ever tried this...Drop Stitch Pullover Sweater
Has anybody ever tried to do this?

http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patt...dropstpull.htm

I wanted to try this for my mother's Christmas or maybe birthday present, getting an early start. It seems pretty easy(ish) but, I have not really tried a sweater before, mainly because of the cost of yarn. Being only 13 years old (Well, 14 in 3 weeks) I do not have much money. When I have a semi-expensive-ish project every once in a LONG while, my mom usually chips in a little. But since this will be a gift for her, I will have no financial assisstance!!!! And I have heard before that some sweaters can cost anywhere between $50-80 and I don't really have that!! So I have two questions to ask, 1)Is it easy? Because I do not want to purchase a huge load of yarn and then figure out I cannot even use it because the pattern is too difficult! And 2)Does anybody know where to find really cheap ticker-tape type yarn? That is the type of yarn used in this pattern.

Thanks everybody!!!

Check Michael's or Joann's for the Modea Ticker Tape. Both those stores usually have big sales right about now.

I used this same choo choo yarn for a pattern with a similiar drop stitch. I was making something sleeveless. It just didn't come out as I had envisioned it. I think the gauge across must have been a little too big. And with this type of yarn, there isn't the stretch that regular yarn has. But i think the drop stitch patterns are very cute.
