Different yarns can be used to create a smaller/finer or a larger/thicker blanket by adjusting the thickness of the yarn used & the needle sizes

Alternate yarn suggestions:
4ply yarn: Reduce the needle size to 3.25mm US3 - 3.5mm US4 depending on the actual thickness of 4ply & increase the overall cast on stitches in pattern, in multiples of 15sts, to desired width - knit to desired length

10-12ply yarn: Increase the needle size to 4.5mm US7 - 5mm US8 depending on thickness of the actual yarn used & reduce/increase the amount of cast on stitches, in multiples of 15sts, to desired width - knit to desired length

14ply-chunky yarn: Increase the needle size to 8mm US11 or larger depending on thickness of the actual yarn used & reduce/increase the amount of cast on stitches in multiples of 15sts to desired width - knit to desired length
