Hello, I’m very new here so not sure proportion of UK/US members, but hoping someone might be able to help!
I keep finding US patterns that I want to knit up, and so far have been randomly substituting yarns I can’t get in the UK for completely different yarns… and often changing needle size etc too.
I’d really like to try and knit up a pattern true to the pattern - if you know what I mean! But don’t know enough about wools to know how to find the equivalent yarn in the UK to the US version.
In particular I want to knit a sweater in TLC cotton plus (hopefully in the Kiwi colour) but can’t get it in the UK and postage from the states is going to cost… does anyone know what I could use as an alternative?
I also want to know about Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky - is that similar to Rowan Big Wool?
Grateful to anyone who can help! :??
