First of all try a guage/tension swatch. Cast on 25 stitches, use 5,5 mm needles and knit stocking stitch for 4 ins. This should tell you if the pattern will work with these needles and yarn.
Count your stitches over the 4 ins and see wht you have to the inch. This is your guage oe=r tension then check with your pattern to see what the guage/tension is.
To change a pattern this drastically needs an experienced knitter
If it is the pattern only that you want. then find a pattern for 8 ply and use the stitch count on the original pattern and modify for the new pattern.I wish you luck.

SOURCE: My Bernina 180 will not feed when I use a twin

are you using a stretch twin needle; without one you'll get skipped stitches. However, the feed sounds more like a feed dog issue. Have you lowered the feed dogs for any reason? Will it sew on a woven cotton okay? If yes, but not feeding the knit then you could try turning up the presser foot pressure and see if that helps with the feed.

If you look across the needle plate with the presser foot removed and manually turn it through a stitch sequence, can you see the feed dogs coming up above the needle plate??

I have homespun 4 ply knitting wool and intend knitting a cardigan. I have a pattern for an 8 ply and was wondering if I could used this not sure how to go about it. Thanks Nuccia


Converting a pattern to a different yarn size is difficult. The only way would be to knit a square using needles that you think may work. After knitting a square that is probably 12" x 12", measure and count the number of rows and horizontal stitches in the square and compare that to what is called for in the pattern. You can test, and test, and test, but be prepared that the final garment may not be the result you seek.

FWIW, the "ply" really doesn't have as much to do with the overall result as the actual thickness of the thread.

What size needles for bulky/12py wool?


It depends on your project. You need the size needle that will give you the stitch width and stitch length called for in the pattern. The pattern calls for a specific gauge, so you'll need to try out different needles, knitting a swatch on each needle size, and counting the number of stitches across and down to match the pattern specification. Does the pattern not give you a needle size? Needles come in either straight or circular in all various sizes as long as you stay within the same brand needle. (Needle brands differ from one to another, so try to stay within only one brand.) So a straight needle size 6 should be the same size as a circular needle size 6 (of the same brand).

However, although it may call for a specific size needle, you will still need to knit some test swatches because knitters usually knit looser or tighter, so one needs to adjust the needle size to accommodate those differences, ie someone who knits tightly may get 8 stitches to an inch, but a loose knitter may get only 6 stitches. But if the pattern says to cast on 48 stitches in for row 1, that means the 8 stitch gauge will yield a project that measures 6 inches wide (48/8=6). But a 6 stitch gauge will yield a project of 8 inches wide (48/6=8). The result would be one project will be 2 inches wider than the other.

But that is only half of the problem as you would still need to measure the number of rows per inch to get the length of the project. If there are more rows to the inch than specified, a garment with say an armhole that may be too small. If there are fewer rows to an inch, the result may be an armhole that is way to big.

Be very careful with your pattern and yarn selection. You will be much more successful if you stick to the number ply and yarn weight specified in the pattern, ie if the pattern calls for 2-ply 2 oz yarn, there may be some particularly difficult issues with substituting a 4-ply 4 oz. yarn. You may end up with a project that will not fit. For instance, you wouldn't want to use a heavier yarn to knit a baby garment. Baby garments usually call for baby yarn which is a specific ply and weight.

Could I use 4 ply instead of 3ply In a dolls knitting pattern


You should probably do a test to make sure that the pattern using 4-ply yields the same size as it would using 3-ply, otherwise your finished item will not be the correct size. Most patterns have a test pattern to make sure your results are what the resulting pattern should be, ie knit a swatch of the pattern and measure it against what it should be according to the pattern instructions. You may need to change the size of needle to get the best result.

How can I substitute one knitting yarn for another?


don't know the type of wool you are speaking of, bu you need to identify what yarn type it is, ie double knit, 3 ply, chunky, etc.... and then you can just purchase wool that has the same ply and it should knit up the same as the Rico -just checked Rico its a super chunky its thicker than chunky which is 12-16 ply, so very thick. Ask for a wool that knits up on number 10 needles and is close to roving
