Hello all - I entered the brand of the yarn (Red Heart) which took me to Herrschners. Then I entered the specific yarn used in the pattern. (Boutique Changes). It came up and in the description - it gives all the details for that yarn, including how much is in a skein or ball etc. Here is a link for this one - http//www.herrschners.com/Product/BoutiqueChanges. == aspx This method of searching has served me well in most cases. -)

A ball of yarn does not seem to be an exact specific amount. How many ounces are needed for the open cardigan.

I want to make this cardigan but have a starting question. How many ounces in a "ball" of yarn? I'm not on face book to get the answer from there.

I made this for my sister for Christmas in a dark slate blue yarn. It turned out beautiful. The pattern was easy to read and follow.

Help me pjn...... the body went so well but now the seams? too confusing, please tell me what the answer is

 

Apr 11, 2013

ok, I think I figured it out. The side seams create what I would describe as a shrug. I am progressing and hope to complete this sweater very soon.
