Let’s get start!

– I used  100% acrylic Lion brand Heartland color redwood. or Lion brand Wool-Ease

Yarn weight  4 medium 142 gram, 251 yard

You will be holding 2 strand of yarn while crochet at all time for this pattern. But If you donot like to work with 2 strand of yarn while crochet just swap with chunky yarn instead it will do the job. For chunky yarn or bulky yarn I would recommend Lion brand wool ease thick and quick.

  1. I’m thinking you repeated the instructions for the armhole trim twice and didn’t cover around the sleeves or neck and down the front area. Am I wrong?

  2. Hi Sandy, Oh yes you are right ^^thanks for tell me, It’s typing mistake, I fixed it now.

  3. Tnank you Jane for the new pattern. How many skeins of yarn would you recommend for this project?

  4. Hi Keely, I use around 8 skein for hold double but if use use chunky yarn probably 5-6 skein.
