Hi there - does anyone know what ply I should be using? Sorry for the dumb question but yarn is still relatively new to me! Buying yarn in New Zealand requires me to know what ply the pattern calls for.... Smiley Thanks.

Somewhere in one of these Knitting boards the same question was asked and someone replied with links to conversion tables. Do a search for "New Zealand" +ply and that should bring up a coupla six messages...

Ohmigod! Thank you! I have found a conversion chart to use. Yarn weight suddenly makes so much more sense!

so, this is (Anthropologie-inspired)-inspired capelet:)
basic idea is the same, i just used eyelets+seed stitch for this one, cause my sister wanted something bit more summery "trendy" and bit bigger sleeves. she just loves seed stitch, she is more impressed by it then by some complicated lace... ah, those non-knitters:) if someone needs pattern for eyelet part, fell free to ask, i still have it somewhere:)


Here is it modeled by my beautiful... coat hanger (click for bigger)

I really like your version!  I would love to know your pattern/process to save me some thinking time Smiley

I love the look of seed stitch too, even though it is simple it adds a lot!
