    It seemed like 160 chains with an L (8) hook would be really long. I'm doing 70 chains and that is 29" long. I'm using a size smaller hook K also with a substitute yarn New Basic 175 Lion Brand with a fine yarn as the mix. How long is this supposed to be and how long is yours?

    I am new to crocheting. I have Abbey road - wool to be wild 12ply yarn. Will that be ok for this pattern? Thank you

    • Hi Alison,
      Abbey Road - Wool to be Wild is a slightly thicker yarn than the Phil Mikado used in this pattern. The Mikado is a 10 ply yarn (Aran weight). But the difference is only slight, so I think it could work fine. Your best bet is to chain the required number of sts (here 160 ch sts) and measure how long your chain is. It should be approx. 130 cm long. If it's much longer than this, you have two options: Option 1. Reduce the number of chain sts you use (in multiples of 5, so try 155 ch sts, or 150 ch sts) until you get the right length. You may need to use slightly fewer rows too to get the correct height of 30 cm. Option 2. Try a smaller hook to get the dimensions given in the pattern (this will make the fabric slightly denser). This pattern is much more adaptable than a fitted garment, like a sweater, so it's a good one to experiment with. Good luck! Let us know how you get on. Best wishes, Amy - Team Yarnplaza
