Suggested yarns are: 2 ply, fingering, sock, baby, and some sport weight yarns. 


Yardage requirements can be found within the pattern for your selected size.  


Suggested yarn names listed are:  Diamante, Trenzi, which are currently available.

If you choose to make buttonholes, purchase buttons to complete your sweater.  In testing this sweater, 7/8 inch buttons is the maximum size possible, with the Kidoodles buttonhole instruction.
