I have a pattern that calls for Plymouth Handpaint Wool that will be felted. I looked on the Plymouth website to see if I could find out what guage it is (bulky, super bulky etc) and I cant seem to find it. I have a few wool options in my stash, but I am unsure what to do. Does anyone have any idea what weight that original yarn is? The pattern says to knit it on 17s (holy snarkies those are like telephone poles after 1s) but I since it is felted, Im not sure if they relate to the yarn. The guage is 7.5 sts and 10 rows to 4, I can make it happen with either of my options, but Im worried about the gap between sts, you know? Ugh, Im rambling. Smiley Thanks!

Yarndex.com says it's a super bulky, knit on 15s at 8 sts to 4 inches.
Hope that helped some.

Thanks, I'm going to just fiddle the pattern to make it work with thinner yarn.  I refuse to buy yarn to make this work, I'll just have to suck it up and do math.  Cheesy

If you sub two strands of worsted on the size 15s, you might be able to get close for the pattern.
