I am looking through a pamphlet type book.(I taught myself knitting). In the beginning of it, it shows and explains what each yarn weight is (assuming what they use in pattern). I found a cute baby blanket. It calls for 2 strands held together of worsted weight yarn wouldn’t that be heavy for a baby? Needle size is 13 29" circular.
They give this for their types: 1. Baby fingering weight( lightest weight and fine). 2. Sport weight( about twice the thickness of baby .many fashions yarn are sport weight) 3. Worsted weight ( about twice the thickness of sport weight yarn. Most used and widely available) 4. Bulky weight or rug yarn( twice the size of worsted. Heaviest weight and thick).
I understand the way they described each category, but seems some of the patterns are using 1 higher weighted yarn than I would expect. They are all beginner patterns.
Would using 2 strands be to heavy for a baby blanket?
