Hi all -
Hoping you can help me… Somewhere in my internet travels I saw a converter that would convert yarn weight and needle size to different gauges. (or is that different needles sizes to different gauges for yarn weight.)
I believe it was on a yarn manufacturer website somewhere, but I’ll be darned if I can find it.
If I’m remembering right, you could put in the weight of the yarn, or the needle size or the gauge in order to convert what you have, to get what you need for your pattern.
Does anyone remember seeing it? Maybe I’m delusional or was dreaming it.
Silly me, bought a ball of yarn that I liked the colour of to make a pair of socks for my sister. Not thinking about the fact that it wasn’t sock weight yarn. (5 weight, chunky, Lion Brand Tweed Stripes) I have a pattern for super chunky weight yarn with size 13 dpn’s and tried that but they were much too holy for my taste. (er little looser than I wanted) Frogged the whole sock and am starting over.
I don’t have a lot of dpn’s so am limited to sizes that I have. I have sets up to size US 4 which I’m sure is too small. I did manage to find a set of size 8 dpn’s in my mothers collection which I think may do okay, but now I’ve got to find a pattern or convert one that I have for sock yarn with sz 4 dpn’s or use the super chunky pattern that uses the sz 13 dpn’s.
I’m sure if I could remember where I saw this converter, it would solve my problem. :blooby: … or I could just wing it.
Can anyone recall seeing this converter? Any other suggestions?
(yes yes…make a gauge swatch…)
Any help would be appreciated…
