Let's Boo-gie Sweater
Let's cast on fun Halloween sweaters! Grab your copy of the Let's Boo-gie sweater pattern here.
Yardage is listed as both full skeins of the original Amy March DK and by total yardage. A Dk weight yarn with good elasticity is recommended for best fit. For a more affordable yarn I recommend Reborn Recycled Wool.
Yardage for Original Colors (shown above):
Yarn requirements listed as BOTH yardage & number of skeins (to simplify purchasing Amy March DK to match samples). You only need the yardage required. For example, 560 yards = 2 skeins of Amy March DK. Add 2 skeins of Amy March DK for a total of 560 yards.
Yardage & number of skeins are listed for all colors.
|Main Color Skeins||MC Yardage||Orange Skeins||Orange Yardage||Yellow Skeins||Yellow Yardage||Black Skeins||Black Yardage||Pink Yardage|

Speed up your colorwork and improve your tension with a Norwegian knitting thimble.
Weaving In Ends
There's no way around it - colorwork generates so many ends! When possible, I've started weaving in ends as I go. It's nearly invisible and saves a lot of work at the end of the project.

There are some times when weaving in as you go isn't ideal as it creates distortion on the front side of the work. Instead, weave in those ends using a tapestry needle after the knitting is complete.
The Reborn Recycled Wool colors are a little bit muted compared to the brightness of the Amy March Dk of the original sweater.
