I was looking at a pattern for a Christmas stocking, and it called for 8 ply yarn. I know tht 's know the same as weight. It look like regualr #4 weight yarn, but I could be wrong. Can anyone help?

I believe that the pattern is referring to 8 ply cotton yarn (Peaches and Cream make lovely 8 ply that's available on their website--on sale but maybe not for long). It's the equivalent of 2 4 ply skeins knitted together. It will produce a heavy duty scarf that will be very warm even though it's made out of cotton.
