That's interesting. What about if I need Aran gauge, like 18 sts per 4 inches. Do you think doubling worsted would work, or doubling light worsted? I'm mostly trying to compile a list for myself, it's not really for a project right now.
That helps, but I was thinking more about gauge. I wanted to know what gauge two worsted strands would give, two dk strands, two lace weight strands, etc. I'm more interested in gauge than needle size, but thanks anyway
I am looking for a chart that will tell me what gauge I will get if I hold two strands of a certain weight yarn together. For example: 2 strands of DK weight yarn equals ____ weight. Or, 2 strands of yarn that gets 20 stitches to the inch will give a gauge of _____ stitches per inch.
Hi! Somebody e-mailed me to get the modifications for the hybrid Steek Tank that I made (in the first post of the thread). I forgot to write it down and now that months have passed, I don't really remember much. Here's what I do remember:
First, it's actually a mix between the "Yoke Vest" and the "Steek Tank." I didn't use the ballet tee pattern at all. Another thing I did was hold 2 worsted weight yarns together to get gauge.
Basically, you cast on the number of stitches the pattern calls for in the Yoke Vest. You proceed to make the shaping in the front and back as the pattern calls for. Then, once it measures about the same as the ribbing from the steek tank, you begin to substitute the steeks from the steek tank for the shaping in the yoke vest. From then on, you are working on the steek tank.
The sleeves came from the Yoke Vest. Once you get it long enough (I made mine extra long), you begin the sleeve shaping from the Yoke Vest while continuing to make the YO Steeks from the steek tank.
They don't have actual food, unfortunately. Sometimes they have bagels and croissants, but sometimes they don't. Sometimes they have ethiopian sandwiches and soups from Cafe Lallo (I think that's the name) but in the summer I think they might not have it. It's mostly just coffee and biscotti and such. The coffee is really good though and they are really nice there. They also have local art there which is great to see. Last time I was there it was all fiber arts hanging up on the walls.
