What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check gauge. It worked up a little larger than I expected.

How much yarn did you use? I seem to be having difficulty figuring that out!

The patten calls for 835 yards, but I don't know how much of it I used. I used a yarn I had in stash rather than the yarn specified on the pattern, which was in smaller sized balls than what's called for. Sorry I'm not much help there!

hey im trying to make this as a present. im a little confused at to what size of wool i should use? I started in aran with a size 4 hook but its huge. Can you offer any help thanks :)

The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn and a G (6) hook. Your aran yarn might be too chunky to hit gauge, which is 4 hdc/inch. Row gauge is 3 rows/inch. I would definitely swatch for gauge, and if you're too big, move down a hook size until you get it, Or change out your yarn for a finer weight.
