I have a question to ask : If your pattern calls for DK sports wgt. yarn and size #3 and #6 US knitting needles, but I have a lot of worsted wgt. yarn which I would like to use in this pattern, DO I CHANGE THE SIZE OF MY KNITTING NEEDLES TO SIZE #2 and #4 , beacuse worsted wgt. yarn is a little thicker then DK sports wgt. yarn, so in my way of thinking using the worsted wgt. yarn would make the sweater bigger. My pattern that I wish to use is The #1559 Sirdar baby wrap sweater pattern. sizes go from 0-3mos. to 5-6 years. I will be making a size 1 yr. as my new great-granddaughter born 1/24/07 weight in at 9lbs.11ozs. Big girl. Her name is Faith. I just joined this Forum today and so I am new at this. Hope I do it right. I am 72 years. old and have 3 gread-granddaughers and 2 great-grandsons. I would appreciate any help I can get with this problem. Have a great day.
