I think I will give this free pattern a try!!! But I will use another yarn. I may try some of the sport weight yarn or some pakucko cotton that's in worsted weight. I think the "Bamboo" yarn mentioned is DK weight. Any suggestions from you seasoned knitters?? We are headed to Fort Myers, Florida next week (unless a hurricane interferes) so I may decide to wait until I get back. I will take a simple pattern of something to work on with me on the trip.
