A new yarn at the shop. It comes with a nice booklet of 15 patterns by Magdalena Neuer. I decided on the vest for the shop. You have to read everything carefully as the suggested needle size on the band is not US# needle. The pattern calls for 12mm and I am using 12.75 mm which is US#17. Also the directions are written in cm, so be careful not to make it too big. Converted into inches the numbers are much lower.
One ball of yarn gave me a total of 32cm length and I calculated that I should be fine with four balls of yarn for the small size for the shop. The total length to knit is 126cm (minus the armholes, plus yarn to finish crochet around the armholes. This may be that I am using the bigger US# 17 needle ( 12.75mm instead of 12mm). It is coming out lovely! (My row count is 37/6/42/6/37).
Also need a J size crochet hook (6mm) for around the arm holes.
