My DD wants me to crochet rainbow leggings for toddler. I've found patterns American crochet but they only give the brand of wool not the ply. They require size 5 and 5 1/2 English size hooks. The wool sock I bought is way too fine. Any idea what I should be getting? They look quite chunky in the picture.
On Pinterest I saw a method of using up scraps of wool by knitting in a circle( about 8 stiches)and picking up one stitch from the edge each row. I didn't pin it and I have tried several searches. Has any one else any idea? Perhaps I should have started a new thread.
