Hey everyone! I’m very new to knitting. I just started last week, but I’m sort of in love with it, lol. I’ve made a scarf in garter stitch that I think turned out pretty well for my very first project.
But now I’m looking at other patterns that are slightly more complicated. My problem is that where I live there aren’t a lot of yarn options. My question is this: Do I need to use the EXACT yarn that it calls for in the pattern? Can you substitute with other yarns of the same weight?
I know I can order online, but I’d like to feel the yarn first you know? Thanks!
