Math and Yarn Substitution
Neither of which I know much about. Today at work while I was supposed to be doing something else (oops) I found this shawl.
Now, I've never made anything this big but I lovvvve the colors. However, I suck at math so I think I have figured that 245 metres =245 yards sorta kinda? And I don't know much about angora but I was looking in the Knitpicks catalog and found this which has nothing to do with angora but is awfully pretty. In the pattern it calls for 3 balls of different colors..like I guess, deep orange, brown and some sort of reddish bronze? And this yarn looks as if it has all the colors in it. So would you just use 3 balls of the same thing? And would baby alpaca and silk come even close to making something that looked like the angora shawl?
Hell, I don't even know where I would wear a shawl. But it's an interesting puzzle. Now if I just knew what I was talking about LOL
