i have two questions.
one: the pattern calls for worsted, DK or any yarn held together in two strands to yield a gauge of 3 stitches/inch, and size 10.5 needles.
i’d really like to use lion brand wool-ease yarn, because of how thick and warm it is. it’s “super bulky weight”.
does anyone know how i would change the pattern from the smaller weight yarn to the thicker one? i’d imagine i’d have to get a bigger circular needle, but would i need to cast on less stitches?
two: it says to cast on 60 stitches onto a circular needle, then “join”. how do i do this?
here’s the pattern: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt05.htm
thank you very much!!
