In this (http://www.marniemaclean.com/patterns/HisHat/hishat.html) pattern, the yarn says "Scottie", but when I clicked on the link, it's a dead link. It looks like it used to be on http://www.artfibers.com site, but I can't find it there either. Based off of the text preceeding the pattern, I'm guessing it's a merino wool yarn, but what's the gauge? What's the weight? :shrug: Anybody familiar with this yarn?

Gauge for the pattern is 3.5 sp on 10.5 needles...chunky weight yarn (http://www.yarnstandards.com/weight.html). As long as you match that with whatever yarn you substitute the pattern will be ok.

You could PM Marnie for more information.

Thanks Kemp!!!! :muah: This is the first hat my husband actually said he likes--I want to knit him something but he's so picky. When he said he liked this hat, I scrambled to find out what kind of yarn to use because apparently this yarn is discontinued. I think a nice merino in corresponding gauge will suit him well.
