The pattern calls for aran or worsted weight yarn.

In the next lesson, we will go through how to choose the right yarn for your project and how to make sure you have enough for your chosen size too, of course.

Generally speaking you can reuse the yarn from your swatches in your project (even though the yarn has already been blocked). It shouldn't make a very noticeable difference in your finished project, especially after you block the whole sweater again at the end.

If you'd prefer to have some "insurance" yarn then ordering an extra ball might be no harm at all. Aran / worsted weight yarn is very versatile and you could even use any leftovers as stripes in your next sweater project. (Remember there are multiple different combinations and styles that can be made from this one pattern, so you won't be short of options!)

This will depend!

The pattern recommends 5mm / US 8 for the main fabric and 4.5mn / US 7 for the ribbed edges, but your swatch might tell you that you need to adjust in order to get the right fit on your finished sweater.

We cover this in detail in Lesson 2 the follow along. All will be explained, we promise!
