Yarn Weight Question For Baby Blanket Campaign
I'm working on a blanket, hopefully for the current campaign. It's my first blanket, so I'm hoping that I'll knit it to the right size. I have a question about the yarn I'm using, and whether it will be warm enough for your needs. The yarn is designed to be knit up on US #3 needles with a gauge of 25 stitches & 33 rows over 4" square.
I'm knitting the blanket with #8 US needles in order to create a soft floppy blanket. Here's the wool specs:
JO SHARRP Alpaca Silk Geprgette = 40% alpaca, 40% merino, 20% silk - hand washable.
Can you tell me if this would meet your needs if I succeed in finishing the blanket? Will my blanket be warm enough?
