Free Vintage Knitting Pattern

Hello!!! I found this pattern Jumper Cardigan and I'm trying to figure out how much yarn I would need for each color. I can't find the "vintage yarn" information anywhere and it looks like the few projects either didn't put in how much yarn they used and/or just added how many skeins they had.

Would you be able to tell me how many yards in fingering weight yarn were used so I can find a current substitute? I can't find Wakefield Greenwood's Super Botany 4 ply anywhere on the internet. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place or google is not my friend!

hi lisa!

if you sign up to www.ravelry.com

there are several people who have completed the jumper and posted photos and notes, you should be able to get a better idea of how much you would need....sorry i didn't get back to you earlier!

Hi there! There are - but they didn't list how much they actually used - hence the problem with trying to figure out if I have enough yarn.

Do you know how many yards came in the Super Botany 4ply per oz?

Thank you!!
