If you have a favorite four-ply yarn, try making a gauge swatch with the needle size suggested. This should give you an idea as to whether you can convert. Keep in mind that colors have a lot to do with the thickness of the yarn used, so be certain to do your swatch in the yarn you plan to try to use. Good luck and Happy Knitting!!! Marian
