I have yarn that is 3.5 oz./100g;82 yds. My pattern calls for 3.5 oz./110g;148 yds. Can I knit this pattern with my yarn?
Tess : )
Well, yes you can use this yarn to knit your pattern but the garment will be much smaller than intended.
Going by the weight and yardage, I would suspect that the pattern uses a heavier yarn than the one you have. So if you knit up the one you have the tension will be smaller than the tension used in the pattern.
You could check by knitting a tension square
. That will tell you how big the difference will be.
