I'd like to knit a blanket big enough to curl up on the couch with. No specific measurements really. But, I just started knitting and I know nothing about yarn/needle selection. I'm also not sure how many stitches I'd have to cast on to achieve a snuggly blanket.
I've been told I need some circular needles.
I have 6.5mm (US: 10 1/2) 29" circular needles.
As far as my yarn goes I have some acrylic gray stuff.. it's pretty thin. Not sure how to describe what size or kind it is. It says medium 4 on it?..
Can I work with that?
I don't want a thin thin blankey, no one wants to snuggle with lace. I'm not sure if I'd have to double up the yarn?
Any suggestions welcome.
Try to keep the abbreviations to a minimum.
I'm not very fluent in knitter yet.
