I have Aran wool and want to knit a simple adult over-sweater. How many stitches do I cast on and what size needles, please.


You need a pattern to follow. For one thing, yarns vary in thickness, so the number of stitches needed will be different dependent on the yarn thickness, not to mention the adult size you are seeking.

You should probably knit a sample piece probably 12" x 12" and count the number of rows per inch and the number of stitches per inch in order to determine how many you will need width wise and length wise for your garment.

I am trying to cut out the quilt for pattern and 3795 and I'm confused why I need to put price 2 on the fold line


Cannot see the pattern you are describing, but there is a very good reason why you need to double the fabric.

Because that piece needs to be doubled. If you cut out only one piece, you would only have half of what is needed. If you cut 2 separate pieces, that means you would have to sew a seam down the middle (plus, once you've sewn a seam, that particular piece will be too small since you reduced the size by taking two seams-width out of it).

By way of example, look at the back of your blouse. It is one solid piece from underarm to the other underarm. One side is the mirror image of the other side, with the centerline down the middle of your back. The pattern companies save paper by giving you only half the pattern, and you accomplish making a full piece by placing the pattern's center line on the fold of the fabric. When you've cut out the fabric and open it up, you have one "complete" piece.

Do you need to wash fabric before laying it on the pattern?


Depends on the fabric...cotton shrinks quite a bit and some fabrics should not be washed, like some wools. And make sure you lay the pattern on top of the fabric...you have to be able to see the pattern to cut it.

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.
