I have been trying to learn about yarn ply. If I have a pattern that calls for 8 ply and I have 4 ply acrylic soft worsted (Deborah Norville soft worsted Everyday) how can I tell if it would work? It’s for the pattern, http://craftbits.com/project/charity-pattern-basic-adults-knitted-beanie/ and the yarn is a multi colored really pretty color.
I have a problem ordering yarn and then forgetting what I wanted for when it gets here! :?? :think: Does that sound like a serious mental problem? :oo:
Oh, I forgot to mention that this yarn says medium with a 4 on the label, but I have some other yarn that says the same thing and seems a little bit bulkier.
