I have a pattern for a fitted cardigan/jacket. The item is actually knitted throughout using the following pattern and uses approx 20oz of double knitting wool:
TEXTURE PAT: Row 1 (RS): Knit. Rows 2, 4, 6: Purl.
Row 3: K3, * MK, K3; rep from * across. Row 5: Knit.
Row 7: MK, * K3, MK; rep from * across. Row 8: Purl.
Rep Rows 1-8 for Texture Pat.
Can I just follow the pattern using stocking stitch throughout and if so would it use more or less wool?
