I'm wanting to knit a winter hat, and the pattern says she used two skeins of Cascade Pastaza. She doesn't state what weight yarn to use if substituting, so I googled and found a couple of sites which sell this particular kind, to see if I could find out what weight it is. Each of the two sites where I looked give the exact same specifications for the yarn, except one classifies it as a "chunky", and one classifies it as a "worsted".

I'm wanting to use a yarn I have on hand, but am not sure what weight to use. Can anyone advise me on this, that is familiar with that yarn? :??

The Cascade site states that it knits up 4 sts to the inch with #9 needles, which sounds as if it's chunky to me :?? .....that's the best description that I could find.

Thanks, Rebecca. I should have been able to figure that out, I guess. :blush:

I was hoping it was chunky, since that's what I have on hand that I'm wanting to use for this hat. I appreciate your help! :cheering:
