I’ve got a ‘Knitting in Vogue n2’ book printed in 1984 and I was thinking of doing the cardigan part of a twin set.
It’s a 1958 pattern and calls for the following:
ANI Shetland 2 ply 19x25g
1 pair 3mm needles
1 pair 3.75 needles
The given tension for 10cm is 26 st and 34 rows.
My question, as a beginner, is this: I always thought 2 ply was very fine, good for baby clothes etc. The photo of this cardigan in the book seems to show a more robust wool. Is that because it’s Shetland? Or maybe those ‘ply’ terms have changed over time?
