I subbed the yarn. I just used Sugar and cream cotton in softly taupe and then a ribbon yarn I found at the store that had similar taupe and brown colors for the bows. I even got the yarn in the super sized balls on sale. The skirt ended up being right around $25 for the yarn and extra needle I needed to buy. I was happy with that price  Smiley

I'm shocked that you used sugar & cream!  I have always used this yarn only for dishcloths - I never knew it could knit up into such a beautiful garment!  Kudos!

Thanks again! To answer one of the questions, the Sugar and Cream cotton is holding up fine. I have made many other things out of it too. I am not a "yarn snob" (not to imply that anyone is, I am just saying, I'm not), so I never buy really expensive yarns. I always try to sub with something cheaper. I couldn't afford to knit if I was a yarn snob  Smiley Thanks again for your comments. I hope some of you do make this. I will be looking for your posts when you finish!

I totally know what you mean.  I don't think I've ever knit a pattern with the yarn it calls for - I'm always subbing for a significantly cheaper yarn!  Lol.  I'm going to try S&C for my next cotton project.  I've been using knitpicks shine cotton a lot lately, but I really like the matte look you got with the S&C.  Bonus - no waiting for the shipment to come, or wondering what the color will actually look like off the computer screen.
