I'm thinking of making Swell as a Christmas gift, and trying to use up some of my stashes. However, I have only about 200yds of a worsted weight yarn in natural cream color.
Do you think I can make the whole thing with 200yds?
(I'm thinking of dying it into 2 different colors.)
Thanks in advance!

Are you going to use a contrast colour as well?  I made mine with Cascade 220 and I probably have 20 yds or more of the brown left, and most of the white.

Yes, I was hoping 200 yds to be enough for MC and CC.
I think it would be quite challenging, right?

I think you would be cutting it a little close.  But I am totally estimating here, trying to imagine the balls of yarn left at home...

Thanks guys!
Fortunately, I found another ball of the same yarn in my stash.
I'm dying it tonight! Yeay~~
