  1. Got it! Thank you so much Staci. Gotta tell you, I’m in love with this German Twist cast on. It’s so easy and makes the edge work so much neater. I’m with you. I think I’ll be using this cast on method mostly if not all the time. I’m already 20 rows into the body of my sweater and it’s very nice! This is my third ever sweater. I’m a sock and glove knitter for a few years so this is a treat! Thank you so much for your wonderful tutorial!

  2. Hi Staci, Started this project today 🙂 When I received the pattern noticed “worsted” but did not notice 10 ply. Purchased 4 ply 🙁 (big difference lol). Can I continue or is it advisable to return the yarn and purchase 10 ply??
