It would help if we knew the weight and gauge of the yarn you want to replace. More info helps us help you when asking questions.

Okay. Here's the link for others to see.

The problem you're going to have is that the yarn used has a very unique look. Most yarns you substitute won't be the same and will make the whole sweater look different.. I'll see what I can find though.

Of course! I did find a few patterns from Mango Moon that used the same yarn, but most people had only used the suggested one although a few did choose others.
