Hey there! I’m trying to get my head around substituting for a Kate Davies cardigan pattern.
I have Aran weight wool I’d like to use, however the pattern calls for 2 ply jumper weight, do I go with 4.5-5mm needles recommended for Aran and go down a couple of sizes on the pattern? Or do I use larger needles than required for Aran weight? Or smaller ones? (I’m usually a confident crocheter so this is all very confusing!) I tried to do a swatch with 6mm needles and it came out 16 st for 10cm (the pattern called for 30 st for 10cm on a 2.75 needle.) Does that mean that I have to knit on 3mm needles? How do I work out which size I need to follow in the pattern if I do this? Argh I’m so confused!
Thank you for any help you can give me!
