I (finally!!) got my yarn to make the Jayne hat on http://redshirtknitting.com/?page_id=22.
I’m substituting alpaca for the acrylic. The alpaca seems to be worsted weight so I didn’t think that I would have a problem
I just finished my swatch and instead of getting 4 x 4 from 10 stitches x 15 rows, i’m getting 3 x 2.
I really don’t think that the difference will be that important because a lot of it is just “knit in this color for 3 inches” kind of stuff but I don’t know how to make the adjustments so it will fit around my head.
I’m sure there is a mathy answer but i’m not a mathy person.
