Another beautiful pattern for baby and certainly one to knit! This is a nice straight forward shawl knitted in 2-ply on No.8 (4mm) and No.10 (3 ¼mm) needles. Regards the wool; this pattern was issued when yarns were becoming standardised, so you should be okay using a modern 2-ply, but as always, work a tension square to see if a change in needles is necessary to obtain the tension stipulated in the pattern.
For the crochet version, you will need 200 g of double knitting (DK) yarn and crochet hooks size 4.00 mm and 3.00 mm. For the knit version, you will need 240 g of 2 ply yarn and 3.75 mm needles. I will deal with you fairly and respectfully.
