I found this yarn at Zellers….the odd thing is that it doesn’t appear on Coats and Clark’s website, so I can’t link to it. It’s Red Heart Artesano……98% acrylic, 2% polyamide, rated a bulky yarn, suggested needle size 6mm/10US. I swatched on two 4.5mm/7US circulars for this pattern and my gauge was good.
The tight knitting and “make 1 right” increases are tough on the hands but I like the tweedy look of the yarn. I’m looking forward to seeing the cap take shape – the pattern is 6 pages long, but I don’t think it’s too difficult.
