Ok, so here's my problem. I want to order some yarn from KnitPicks, but I have no idea how much yarn to order. All I want to do is get enough to make a very simple crew neck pullover for myself. I'm getting the pattern from the Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, and so I don't have specific amounts already in hand. This book works backwards. You give it the gauge and it spits out the pattern for you. Thing is that I don't have the gauge if I don't have the yarn. So how do I estimate how much to buy? It's making me nuts. I want to do something for the Knit Red Along, it's been years since I've done a sweater and this just seems perfect. Can anyone in the blogosphere help me here?
