Sport weight vs baby weight
I have a baby hat pattern that calls for sports weight , but all I have is baby weight. Can I make it work?

Make a sample with different size needles until you get the gauge the pattern calls for. It should be pretty close.

It will work, but the final product will probably be a bit thicker. You just have to gauge it.
