I have knit a sweater 2ce for my daughter in bulky wool. I’d like to knit it for myself, but I don’t want to use bulky yarn, using a worsted weight instead. The sweater is quite simple, done in stocking stitch on circular needles to the bottom of the arm hole. You then add the sleeves, then knit in garter stitch for the yoke. It is a free pattern, and works up very nicely. (www.takhistacycharles.com )
I would consider myself an intermediate knitter, but I am not very creative.
I would like to knit a med size for myself. Can I go down to worsted weight & needles, and knit for a large size? Because you would cast on 156 stitches,then go down to 148 after ribbing, I don’t really want to knit 3-4" and find out it is all wrong.
Pattern calls for body to be worked with 120, 134, 148 stitches for S, M, L with a gauge of 14 st and 6.5mm needles
Thanks for any help.
