Hello Amy, I've signed up for this online class and I'm excited about starting my first sweater. I've only every knitted scarves, so this will be my challenge. Question for you regarding yarn for this project. Can I use the Lion Brand Cotton Ease instead of the wool ease if the yarn weight is the same?

Hi- this answer below is exactly right. As long as the gauge of the yarn you're substituting with matches what's stated in the pattern, your project will work out to the pattern specs

Hi. I'm not Amy, but I think I can answer this. Information on the Lion Brand a list of "equivalent" yarns, Cottonease and Woolease being two of them. There's also this instruction: Substituting Yarn If you are substituting yarn, be sure to do a gauge swatch so you know what the finished fabric will look like. It's also important to understand how much yarn to purchase when substituting. Hope this is helpful. :)

I'm not Amy but I can answer: I too am making size 1X, so look at the 4th number in parentheses. For the back and front, that would be 114 stitches and for the sleeves it would be 42 stitches. I just started my sweater this weekend and am working on the back. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Hi I want to do the first sweater class but am a bit apprehensive. Is this really a good class?
