Does anyone know how to convert a pattern written for worsted weight yarn so that it can be made with sport weight yarn instead?  I seem to remember that there was a formula for doing this, but I can't find it!

Hi Laia Chana,

This may help yu a little.  Are you making a fitted garment?  http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/sizing.html  Or are you making something flat that you just need to convert the amount of yardage?

This one is good too.  http://en.allexperts.com/q/Knitting-2228/2011/2/converting-sport-weight-medium.htm

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
