i need help choosing a yarn... i want desperately to make the Tyrolean Stockings
from the new issue of Interweave Knits. this will be my first time ever making a pattern from this amazing magazine (up until now i wasn't confident enough to even think of attempting the patterns in there)
b/c i'm already ordering some sock yarn and need a few needles anyway, i'm thinking of using Knit Picks' Swish Superwash
but i'm stuck trying to figure out if the gauge will work out.
the gauge of the stockings is 12 sts over 18 rows = 2" in St st in the rnd on size 3 needles...
the gauge of the recommended yarn (Green Mountain Spinnery Vermont Organic
), is 4-1/2 st./inch on #7 needles, 5 st./inch on #5 needles, 6 st./inch on #3 needles
i suck at figuring out yarn subs... can someone help me?
oh and if you'd like to give your opinion on color too... that would be great b/c i'm stuck there too *sighs* all i know is that i want something similar to what was used to make the sample.
any help will be greatly appreciated!
