I'm planning on knitting this pattern for my sister for her birthday. I noticed several of you have already made it! My question is, since the Rowan Polar yarn has been discontinued, has anyone used another brand of yarn for the project and liked the outcome? I'm very open to suggestions! Any information on brands that worked well and amount of yarn it took would be appreciated.
also check craftster's KAL for same. I LOooooove this pattern. made it 3 times. twice for me: (berroco foliage wool/ acrylic; patagonia hand dyed cotton) and once for the kid (debbie bliss cashmerino aran). they all look totally different. and the closure you pick (button, pin, clasp) can change the character too. good luck!
did I say one project at a time?
