Need help figuring out yarn amounts for knitty's PPR
That sweater has my oldest's name written all over it. Especially the colors; he loves grey. So I can't find a listing for that yarn when I googled it so I can't figure out how much I need of anything else. As it is it looks like I will have to use something I can dye so that I can get the colors. AAAGH I have never dyed. Is this yarn available to anyone in the US??
Thanks

I don't know what PPR is, can you link it? Nevermind I found it.

I searched and came with a possible misspelling, but that didn't really help the search. I suggest going to the designer's website to see if there is any help there and maybe email him, too. Since the yarn is obviously German you just need to know the weight and yardage so you can find one here.

Oh I don't know you always seem to answers to my questions. I have to wait for dh to get home so that I can set up the express mail thing on this(his) computer since it won't just show me his email address when I hit contact for the designer. Bummer but I can still run to the lys to get some ideas for yarn!

Does the email show at the bottom when you hold your cursor over it? I have a PC and use Firefox. Anyway I'm PMing it to you.

Thanks Jan I sent an email. I kind feel like a starstruck teenager writing to the designer. It is just too perfect for my oldest.

I hope you get an answer. I wrote twice to the designer for another Knitty pattern (Sonnet) and never got a response. Very unprofessional IMO. I'm hoping it was just an email problem, but I never got a notice or anything.

He states in the description at the beginning that it was German yarn he used, and mentioned substitutes. But apparently forgot that balls of yarn come in different yardages...

In the description of the materials, it states that each skein of the yarn he used was 95 yards. Multiply that by the number of skeins and you'll get yardage; together with the gauge, that should get you in the ballpark. (And then buy a couple too many, because you never know -- and it doesn't hurt to have extra if you've miscalculated. Stash is good!)
