Hi,

I'm a beginner and I'm working on a simple dress for my toddler. The pattern (from Yarn Girls Guide to Kid Knits) recommends S. Charles Victoria yarn but I can't find it anywhere. Can anyone recommend a yarn that is gauge 4, comes in a dark red color, and is relatively lightweight and comfortable (it is a sleeveless dress). Are there yarns for more summer-type clothes?

Thanks for any help,
t

If you don't mind ordering it, Elann has the Victoria yarn

Yarndex says it's "heavy worsted". I think that KnitPicks Shine Worsted would probably be a good sub.
