This is a pattern I created a few months ago and I've made quite a few for people who've requested them. It's quite versatile for changing sizes. Although I have specified a particular brand, there is obviously no reason why a different yarn cannot be substituted, but James C Brett seems to drape really well for this project. http://www.crochetville.com/community/files/file/503-ribbed-scoodie/ Edited just to say - if you see the name "Zoe Deterding" on the pictures or document, that is me (my username on Crochetville is different).
I've had a lot of trouble building a stash of plain 'ole four ply worsted weight yarn. It was a great challenge when I wanted to change brands. I used up the old brand, (which was feeling rather stiff) for a more expensive brand that was softer. Now all of the patterns I'm finding are bulky and super bulky. It's very frustrating. I apologize if someone has asked this question, but is there a conversion chart to calculate the number of strands of worsted weight yarn that will equal the thicker sizes? And are the thicker sizes going to be the new norm? Is that what I should be buying, instead of trying to stay with the worsted weight yarn? Am I being old-fashioned by staying with the worsted weight size?
