Need help finding an equivalent pattern or adjusting this one.
Hi I am new to the forum and new to knitting. I have really enjoyed reading the threads and learning from your collective wisdom. I want to knit my daughter a hat and she picked out this one (link in next post as I don't have enough posts to post a link in here.) However, the yarn she picked out is larger than the pattern yarn. This yarn calls for a US size 11 needle.. The pattern calls for 7's and 9's. The yarn package says it is Araucania brand Coliumo Multy 70% wool/30%silk 100 gr, 95 yards, guage us 12 sts/10cm/4" Distributed by knittingfever dot com
Okay, so my question is how do I adjust the pattern to accommodate the yarn or can someone point me to a similar pattern that uses thicker yarn. also, I will be knitting it in the round and so far I know I need to knit the ws rows reversed, any other pointers are appreciated. Thanks,
