Pixie Tips

I have gotten a few questions from overseas knitters about what yarn is most appropriate for the iddy Biddy Pixie Bonnet Pattern. Here in the U.S. I use worsted weight yarn on size 7 or 8 needles, depending on the yarn brand. Based on my own internet research, and feedback from a few knitters, I would recommend that Australian knitters use 8 ply yarn and UK knitters use double knit yarn. If you are using metric needles use 4.5mm or 5mm. Of course, it is always good practice to make a gauge swatch before you start knitting.
