I’m new to the forum but have used the glossary and love its talking instructions!
My question: I have a sweater pattern for my grandson that calls for sport weight yarn. My guage suggests using 5 needles, though the pattern says 6. But I did not like the sport weight yarn selection, but found a deep red worsted weight that I liked and that looks like it would make a better sweater anyway. The skein cover suggests size 8 needles. Can I convert this pattern somehow, or would it do if I just made a smaller size than I was planning? The pattern gives sizing for 6, 12, 18 and 24 months; I was going to go with 24. Would it work to scale it to 18? Since he’s a growing baby, obviously a little larger than necessary is not so bad, but I don’t want it to come out too ridiculous.
Thanks for any help.
