Ds1 would like a knitted clanger for his 5th birthday in December grin.

I've managed to get a pattern (Patons) but the wool that it suggests looks like it's been discontinued. I was wondering if you clever bods who know about such things could help me to find a similar yarn of the right weight and colour.

The original yarn is Patons Knit'n'Save DK in Aurora Pink.

sirdar snuggly dk in spicy pink looks a good clanger match. would that have been the womans weekly magazine one, my mum knitted me one from that pattern and having found it, the snuggly seems a close match in colour. Snuggly is a lovely soft acrylic yarn.

Thanks smile, it looks just the thing!

I think that it's similar to the WW one. Well done to your mum, rumour has it that it was a bugger of a pattern to follow, but this one looks fairly sensible(ish) grin.
