I'm hoping to start a pattern for a sweater in sock yarn, the yarn called for is Zitron Trekking XXL (pattern is "abotanicity" from Knitty.com winter 2007) I'd link if I knew how! My question is this, does anyone know how thick this sock yarn is? Bear in mind I'm in Tasmania Australia so we work on ply here, generally I can figure it out but I need some input here, 8ply is equivilant to DK, would it be too thick?? of course I'll knit a swatch too but want to know what to start looking for!!
