I'm really in love with this yarn, but I can't decide to buy it before I have a pattern in mind. So I was wondering if it would be ok to use it for the Beaded Cami (http://designsbyblackdog.blogspot.com/2006/08/beaded-cami-i-designed-this-cami-to_03.html)
The pattern is written for Jo Sharp Summer DK (22.5 sts & 30 rows on US 6 needles on the yarn site, but 24 sts on the pattern.)
Baby Silk is 28 st/4 inches 3.25 mm (US 3). Too ocomplicated to adapt?
If someone has used Baby Silk for something, how big needles are still ok? I've seen it used with even US 7, but for lace...

edit: and on a second thought, how crazy am I for considering to wear alpaca living 4 degrees far from the Equator?

You might be able to use size 5s though you probably won't get pattern gauge but can follow a larger size of the pattern.
