  1. I’m confused about the yarn that you used. Pattern shows: Yarn – Brazilian Opal (30) cotton kings, fingering #3 weight (100% cotton, 875yards/800m per 7.1oz/200g). fingering #3 weight is it fingering (wt 1) or wt 3 (DK)?
    I’d like to make this neck warmer but not sure about the yarn weight.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Kathy,
      Brazilian Opal is fingering and more of #2 weight. However, this neck warmer can be made using any yarn weight. When substituting any other weight of yarn, make sure to adjust the foundation chain and the repeats accordingly.
