Can I use two strands?

I’ve been commissioned to make a pair of slippers for a friend’s little girl. They need to be really warm. but I haven’t been able to find wool that is very thick in the right colour.

Can I knit with two strands at a time to make them thicker? Or will this not work?


If you put two strands of yarn and knit them like one then yes, you can make a thicker, warmer fabric.

I wish you luck! :thumbsup:

Just be sure to check your gage!!!

Great, thanks!

I did and it worked out great :smiley:
