I am about to start a new project and need a little advice from my best friends and advisers on all things knitting!
This is the pattern I am going to use: http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/h45.shtm
However the yarn that my mom has her heart set on is here (look for "Concha" at Ewe Knits http://thepurledllama.com/NewFabuloso.html
Now... my question is...Since this pattern is not fitted, do I simply knit it the same and not worry about the size? Do I knit with a smaller set of needles? Do I convince dear sweet Mama, that I can't do that pattern with that yarn? I am very new to knitting. I have done a lace pattern already, just not sure about such a big substitution.
Thank you to anyone willing to help!
