yarn help!!

Hi.. I wonder if I can get some yarn brand names that you guys are using for the Summer Top. I went to the store to get 'Sport Weight Cotton' yarns and who'd have guessed it would be so hard..!!!

I came home empty handed after 3 stores so I'm shouting out for help here...

Any name ideas..? I wanted to try Dale Stork but it seems to thin according to the pattern..? Anyone have any ideas...? I'm going crazy here.. :(

Please help! :)Sue.

Hi Sue. I've used a scandinavian yarn that's called Anemone. Another yarn that could be suitable is Rowan 4 ply cotton.

However, I still think that you could try out Dale's Stork (looove the colours)...you could maybee go up one size? What size are you gonna knit? I can generate a new pattern for you using the gauge that Stork has...just e-mail me if you want me to do that =)

Hi Sue,

I think any "ordinary" cotton will do, it is also called 8/4 as far as I can see on the label for the yarn I bought. The gauge should be right on - if not you either go up or down one needle size or maybe even knit the top one size bigger than you intended to (I am).
