Hello does anyone know if it's possible to tell the yarn ply that has been used on a blanket just from looking at it? I want to knit one that's similar.

Thanks !

Take a pic? I'm pretty good on some yarns.

Yes, experience can make it possible to have a good guess. Or you could compare it to weights of yarn you have to try and narrow it down.

Thank you both!

I've added some photos and tried to make sure there was something in the image to show the scale.

I know it's cotton... But that's all. Any ideas?

Looks like DK if you can measure a 10x10cm square you can be more exact.

Dk would be about 22-24 rows and 18-22 stitchs in 10cm square. Count rows and stitchs then when you go wool shopping on the label it will tell you average stitches over 10cm.

I thought DK too.

Thank you both. It's 22 stitches so I guess that confirms its DK!
