To make this pattern, you’ll need a few different weight 2 yarns. I used Lion Brand Beautiful You to make mine. The approximate yardage for each size is:
-Total yds needed (top): 900-1400 yds
-Total yds needed (dress depending on length): 1400-2000 yds
-To do all of the color work, and the striping like mine, you’ll need the following approx. amounts in 3 different colors (Note that if you’re doing the dress you’ll need about double of the following amounts):
Main Color (Yellow): 300 (350, 400, 450, 500, 650, 700, 750, 800 yds)
Contrast Color 1 (Orange): 298-400 yds
Contrast Color 2 (Green): 298-400 yds
