That yarn isn't made anymore. From the gauge and needles called for, I would guesstimate that the yarn is a worsted weight, or a little thinner, but not a sport weight. I haven't used the Simply Soft, so I can't give an opinion on how that would work out. As for checking on yardage, I would find another similar pattern, and use that to judge.
