    I’m confused….on the Ravelry pattern specs, this is listed at 100-110 yds. Yet this pattern lists the yardage at 220. I have approx 175 yds and really don’t want to begin this only to find I’ll come up short!

      I only used about 110 yards to make this. I had a ton left over from my 220 yards of yarn. 🙂
