Hi folks, I’m new here. I have been asked if I can make an outfit in 6/9 months thats set out max 3 months, I used different wool on smaller patterns (new born) which turned out to fit bit bigger, wondered what type of wool would help increase the size to what need, designer suggested Arran but its for a baby wasnt sure if this type of wool would be to rough.
The designer is probably using Aran in the sense of a weight class of yarn rather than a particular wool. It refers to a slightly heavier weight worsted weight, ~16-18sts/inch and can come in all degrees of softness and smoothness.
Managed to get soft arron yesterday, on sale so bought 7 balls of white & 3 of pink, its a deep pink tho so might be to big w contrast to the white if use together.
I bet the white and pink (no matter how dark it is) will look gorgeous together, and if the pink isn’t a traditional baby pink, all the better.
I hope you’ll post a photo on KH of your finished creation. It sounds like it’s going to be gorgeous!
This is the pattern she choose to start with, http://www.babydollhandknitdesigns.co.uk/item_23/Pearly-Princess-16-22-doll0-3m-baby.htm but thinking about doing this 1 too http://www.babydollhandknitdesigns.co.uk/item_332/Herringbone-Coat-Set-for-16-22-dollnewborn0-3m-baby.htm
