I know this has been discussed before, but, I need to know how to do this...again! I have a pattern that calls for worsted weight yarn on size 6 needles that gives a guage of 4.5 sts per inch. How can I use the same pattern and translate the needle size to be used with a bulky weight yarn?

Maybe some of you experienced knitters could explain this to me...one more time!

Hi Colleen,


I found this site that explains how to do the conversion:

Hope this is what you were looking for, I learned something new today too!


What are you making?

My DD is alittle on the punk side. Needless to say, the cute ribbon tank I made for her, really isn't her style. So I am making her some long fingerless gloves out of this really nice black chenille yarn.

Thanks for the info. going to check it out now.
