How much scrap yarn do I need?
The jacket made from pure kid silk mohair scrap yarn with 4 strands weights approx. 225 (250) grams. We recommend you use 4 to 6 strands of kid silk mohair or thicker yarn double with 2 strands. If you use brushed alpaca like Drops melody, Sandnes brushed alpaca or other thick brushed qualities the jacket in standard lenght will have a total weight of approx. 450-500 grams. Depending on how many different colours you want to play with, you can just mix all types of yarn and qualities and give you jacket a unique look.
If you have scrap yarn in different colours you can wind the strands together, giving every strand a personal touch. We receommend you wind up small balls of yarn with 4-6 strands of kid silk mohair or 2 strands of thicker yarn, before you start knitting.
The jacket is knitted on needle size 10 mm.
