I have recently purchased a [=tags&includes=title"]vintage Mary Maxim sweater pattern](http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26251868&ref=sr_gallery_11&&ga_search_query=men’s+sweater+pattern&ga_search_type=all&ga_page=20&order=date_desc&includes[) and since I’ve not received it yet, I was wondering if you all might be able to answer a question for me.
Do you know what type of yarn (worsted weight, chunky, etc) and/or needle sizes these patterns call for? I thought that maybe I could shop for the yarn before the pattern arrives so that I’ll be all ready to begin. :knitting:
I’m very excited about the pattern because I’ve always wanted to knit these types of sweaters and not just in adult sizes, but childrens as well. I’ve especially wanted to find a deer or moose pattern, so finding this last week was a miracle!
Any help or comments anyone has on these patterns would be greatly appreciated! Since I’ve never knit one of these, I’d love to hear any comments, experiences, etc. that you’d like to share with me!
