HELP! Im fixing to buy yarn...oz/yd question
Found a beginner recommended sweater pattern, YAY!

I THINK Its calling for 5 -5oz [195 yard] skeins of bernat illusions or 3-10 oz[390 yards] skeins of bernat mirage

Am I correct in thinking that I can find a yarn locally that is the same oz and yardage, assuming that I do a guage swatch and it matches Ill be just fine???? And Im assuming that Ill be buying 5 skeins that are 195 yards apiece if I go with suggested brand/type??

so far Ive only bough a skein at a time for hats, and scarves have all been made from the remnants of said scarves, lol...

As long as you buy the same thickness of yarn--in this case Bernat Illusion is listed as a Bulky yarn--you can buy the same yardage as you need for the pattern and feel safe.
