Dear Kay, you need 700 g/800 g DROPS Angora Tweed in size M/L lady/man - you can use any alternative yarn group B (see here) and read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Dorothea 03.11.2014 - 13:46:

Hallo, als ik naar de foto kijk, lijkt het meer structuur te hebben, dan dat wat ik volgens M1 kan ontdekken. Kunt u me dat uitleggen?

DROPS Design 03.11.2014 kl. 16:54:

Hoi Dorothea. De trui is gebreid met een tweedgaren, dat geeft wat meer structuur. Maar er is alleen gebreid volgens M.1 op de pand.
