Use only the yarn stated. Other yarns may give different results. Quanities are approximate as they can vary between knitters.
Due to the twist of the Sporti yarn, you may find the fabric knitting up uneven. Do not be dismayed by the appearance. Once you have completed your garment, we recommend with a slightly damp cloth and warm iron, lightly pressing your garment on the wrong side this will even out the fibres and give a much smoother even fabric as the garment pictured.
