A while back I downloaded a pattern using this yarn and US size 10 needles, but I recently read that the yarn uses US size 15 needles. The pattern is for a pair of slippers - would this be why the needle size is different?
It could be. Generally you want slippers knit tighter so they are warmer and sturdier. Their is less stretching of the fabric, too.
I agree with Jan. I used WoolEase Thick and Quick and size 8 needles. My hands hated it, my feet love the slippers. What pattern are you using?
Thank you ladies. Here is the pattern I had in mind: http://www.aokcorral.com/projects/how2oct2005.htm. It does look very cosy, but I decided to leave it for now and am working on another project to use up some of my yarn stash.
