Instead of the Blue Sky Alpaca dyed cottons, I purchased the Sugar N' Cream solid cottons instead. The Blue Sky Alpaca dyed cotton says it can take 7-9 needle sizes. I figured this would be alright since the suggested knitting needle for the Sugar N' Cream yarns is a US 7.

However the pattern calls for a US-9 circular needle (40").

Do I need to change the yarn I purchased or can I just do the pattern using a US-7 circular needle?

Thanks!

Oh, I love that! I I wonder if I will EVER be able to make something like it!
