Hello knitting friends!
I’m pretty new to this whole world-- I taught myself the basics through this super sweet site this past winter-- so I’ve run into a problem in that I have no other friends or acquaintances of whom I can ask questions!
I’m currently hoping to knit this “A Scarf Askew” for my boyfriend to keep him warm on his blistery winter Chicago commute to his downtown law school: http://www.magknits.com/Mar07/patterns/askew.htm
Unfortunately, I had already purchased Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn before I realized this pattern was created with a thinner yarn in mind. As I cast it on, I realized that my version of the scarf was going to be far too wide with the thicker yarn.
** Is there a way to convert the pattern down to fit my thick yarn? Or am I going to need to find another pattern? I really like the look of this one and it took me so long to find one I like, so I’m hoping this can be modified. Any words of knitting wisdom would be so very appreciated! Thank you!!
–Oh, and I’m using size 11 needles in case you need that info.–
