Yarn: This sweater is knitted in Drops Snow/Eskimo. It has a length of 50 meter pr. 50 grams. Depending on what size you knit, you’ll need the following amount of yarn: 500 (600) 700 (800) 900 (1000) grams. Equivalent of 10 (12) 14 (16) 18 (20) balls of yarn if you are using Drops Eskimo. If you want the sweater to be a little longer, you’ll need 2 ekstra balls of yarn.
I’ve used approx. 1 ball of yarn in each color in the front and back, and ½ ball in each color for the sleeves.
