beginning knitter needs help
Hello, I consider myself a beginning knitter. I really only knit stuff that is flat like blankets, scarves, etc. and only using basic stitches.

I am looking at a new project for a baby blanket but I am perplexed by all the different weights of yarn and how that correlates to size of needle.

The project is a King Charles Brocade baby blanket. It calls for DK weight baby yarn. Not sure what that means. and size 6 knitting needles. I have some Caron Simply Soft yarn that is medium #4 and suggests size 8 needles.

My question is can I use this yarn or should I get something different? If so what is DK weight baby yarn. Any suggestions would be great.

TIA
Karen
