    I love this pattern, I’m currently working on this sweater and it’s turning out so cute! Could you give me an estimate on how many rows you worked for the sleeves? I’m not too good at guessing πŸ™‚

  2. Patrice says:

    I love this pattern, but I don’t understand how much yarn is needed. Can you convert grams of yarn to yardage?

    • Maz Kwok says:

      For DK yarn, it’s about 2.5 yds per gr. Which means I used up about 1250 yds for the sample ( 500 gr ) πŸ™‚

    Thank you! I am so excited to make this. Wish me luck, as it will be my first ever attempt to make anything other than an afghan or hat.
