Is anyone considering a different SIZE of yarn? I could never wear something worsted weight.. dead of winter and I am still wearing sockweight sweaters. I have NOT A CLUE how to go forward, I can probably handle converting the pattern once I have an idea of stitch number etc. but is that where I start? Simply knit a swatch that produces the weight of fabric I want and then start converting the stitch numbers?
I think that is what I would do but I can run pretty far out on the limb with no real facts. I want it to be generally loose, not shaped but not huge. I love knitting on smaller needles, 3, 4, 5, 6, so that isn't offputting, and I don't mind lots of stitches, I just want to be on somewhat firm ground when I start converting..
Words of wisdom anyone?
