Hi All, 

I'm new here and I'm looking for help to get started please.  

I'm looking at the specifications listed on the website for what type of yarn to use:

Yarn you can use

You can use different types of wool or wool blend yarns, acrylic yarns or bamboo and lighter weight yarns can be doubled up. But whatever yarn you use, make sure your squares are warm and cosy.

I had printed another sheet off that said to use "worsted yarn" double knit.  So I bought a bunch of yarn that is a weight of 4.  Is that right?  And then I knit 2 pieces of yarn at the same time?  This is what I got.  Is it right or should I return it?

Or should I instead purchase a chunky yarn that is a weight 6 instead and just single knit it?  https://www.joann.com/lion-brand-mandala-thick-quick-yarn/zprd_1611...

Thanks very much for your help!  My 3 kids and I are eager to get started.

Hi Caroline! Welcome to Kint-a-square. What you purchased is exactly right. Use a single strand because it’s a worstwd weight. Start with whatever needle or hook size you’re comfortable with and if you find it too loose or too tight, adjust up or down accordingly. 

Feel free to send me a message if you need more help by clicking on my profile picture and choosing Send a message on the left hand side. 

Thank you for helping to warm the children of Soyth Africa!
