i have an easy blanket pattern for a baby blanket, and it calls for 28 ounces of a worsted weight yarn, no yardage given. is there any way to figure out how much yardage i'd need in a worsted weight given the ounces and the gauge (3.5st/in)? i was considering using KP shine worsted, and have no clue how much to order.
also, have you used lion brand microspun for a baby blanket? if so, how much did you use, and how big was your blanket? i'd love to use the microspun at some point, but again, have no clue how much i would need.
I like microspun but it's really thin and so it takes forever to knit a baby blanket with!
I like Caron Simply Soft or Bernat Softee for baby blankets. The can be machine washed, aren't that expensive, I think they are soft, and they have pretty colors.
