    Mikey said he used boutique unforgettable which is 3.5 ozs and 279 yd (256 m) per skein (ball). So if you want to substitute another yarn you would need approximately 810 yds or 780 m of comparable yarn (meaning same weight yarn).

      Thanks Joy Allen. I understood it after I looked at the pattern.

    Are you planning on a video tutorial for this?

    I think he meant 3 skeins which is the same as a ball of yarn!!! lol

      • July 9, 2013 at 3:05 pm

        I have skeins that are 7 oz or 11 oz or 14 oz. So which one equals 1 ball?

        Please excuse my ignorance. I just want to understand terminology I’m not familiar with. 🙂

        I live in The South in the USA and have always bought my yarn by “X” number of skeins that weigh “X” number of ounces – and then the weight of the yarn factored in. Until I started watching Mikey’s videos, I had never heard of the quantity of yarn needed referred to as balls. It’s always good to learn something new.

        Happy Hooking!!! 🙂

        i’m canadian too, and always refered to them as balls of yarn, until i became an adult and started using the internet to look for patterns, etc. calling them skeins is still weird for me. i prefer my yarn balls too 🙂

    Hey Mikey, Exactly what do you mean by “3 balls of yarn”? I think in some of your tutorials, you also use the term “ball”. This is confusing to me since I buy yarn in skeins that are marked by ounces, grams, yards & meters on the label. So how much does a “ball” equal?

      The pattern is posted. I used the same yarn required in the pattern. I just changed the colour.

        Thanks Mikey. I see it in the pattern now.~Senior Moment~ 🙂
        Love your tutorial videos. I’ve always had trouble reading patterns. You have taught me so many new stitches and patterns. Christmas gifts are in the works for all the grandkids and great-grandkids! Thanks again.
