I know I know…you guys are going to tell me to swatch this yarn in order to answer my question but I just don’t feel like it right now…so here’s my dilema…see if you have advice w/o me swatching first…(give a pregnant lady a break, ok?!? LOL)
I want to do this hat for a girl at church who is having a baby boy so I went out and bought the yarn today…I don’t have a 16 inch circ in the right size (or any size for that matter…) but I have dpns that’ll work just ask well…I got home and realized that yarn I purchased is dk and the pattern calls for worsted. The pattern is sized for a 0-6 month old baby…it needs to be a 4-6 month size b/c the baby is due this month and we live in GA so it’ll likely be Nov. before he can wear it…how can I substitute this to make it work w/o buying new yarn? I’ve never done fair isle so I’m a little afraid to change the pattern much…would it work if I just added 8 stitches to the pattern since the fair isle design is an 8 stitch pattern? If I did that, should I use a smaller needle or stay the same size? I don’t want it to be too large…any advice???
