Cascade Pastaza-Familiar with this yarn?
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.

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!
