Can someone please explain how your yarns can be converted to English patterns where we use 4-ply, double knit, chunky etc..... As I have found loads of American patterns and I am unsure which weight of wools to use:)

Also, you cah always look at the gauge or tension for the pattern and figure the weight that will work from there.
