    I have a question. What yarn should I be using to make garments? I can only find #3 light and a #1. What should the yarn be made out of?

    I am trying to make one with 120 chains, but I’ve got stuck. I do not know how to make the arm pit since I have less patterns like you. Can you help me.
    Thanks

    it has a big 3 on the size of the yarn ball wrapper so i am assuming its a double knit yarn in uk and light worsted other areas that’s what i’m going to try 🙂
