I would like to make the shawl from the Zealana AIR patterns booklet.It is the one on page 2.
The pattern calls for a chunky yarn with a gauge of 18 sts and 23 rows to 4" over St st using a size 9 needle.
I wanted to dress this shawl up a bit and have not found a yarn I like.
I did find a DK weight yarn I love with a gauge of 5.5 sts per 1" using size 5-7 needles.
My question is....
Can I use the DK weight yarn and use two strands on a size 8 needle or would that not look right? I know I would have to make modifications to the pattern and that is ok. But before I buy the yarn, I want to know if it would even work.
The yarn called for in the pattern is:
AIR Chunky by Zealana 1 3/4 oz/50g skeins each approx 159 yds
18 sts = 4" on #9 needles
The yarn I want to use is:
Diadem DK 100g hank 219 yds
5.5 sts = 1" on #5-7 needles
I would greatly appreciate your thoughts and advice.
Thank you so much.
