I always have trouble figuring out how many times to ply, say, a 2/28 yarn for it to become a DK thickness, to knit on US size 7-8 needles, for example

Hi everyone, I am a male knitter - have been knitting since I was a child - did jumpers/sweaters for my school uniform and all. I now teach it too on volunteer trips to Africa and Asia. I would be happy to connect with others. I design a lot of my pieces but then give them away! ;o)

Hi Jeremy
If you are a beginner with Richard's yarn, it is a good idea to start with dk weight. I always order 3 cones for peace of mind as there is nothing worse than a fear of running out of yarn. You can use the remainer for a hat or scarf. Use either size 3.25 mm needles for the rib or 3.75 mm. and for the main body use 4 mm. Richard's yarn appears finer than wool however when it is washed it blooms to "normal" so I suggest that you use the same tension as you would use for woollen dk yarns. I hope this helps. Once you complete and wash your garment you will find it wonderfully soft and warm and then you become an addict of this fine cashmere.
