DK Conversion Notes:
The original pattern is knit in Worsted weight, but can easily be modified using a DK weight. *I highly recommend purchasing the pattern before you purchase a kit so you know what size to buy*. • The called for needle size is a US 8/5mm (giving a gauge of 17.5 sts and 21 rounds for 4”)- I used a US 4/3.5mm for ribbing & a US 6/4mm for the main fabric (giving a gauge of 22 sts and 28 rounds for 4”). I found this gave me a nice drape to the fabric that blocked beautifully when I was finished. • Giving that this pattern is significantly oversized, I still ended up knitting a Medium to fit my bust size of 39”. It is a slightly more fitted look, but still has the feel of an oversized cardigan (finished photos coming Friday) • Yardage requirements are the same for a DK version
