I am a beginner knitter. I want to make a baby blanket for my friend. I bought the yarn before deciding which pattern to use, but I really want to make the popcorn blanket (below). The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn but I have DK yarn. Will using the DK yarn have a significant effect on the outcome of the blanket? Are there any techniques I can use to ensure the blanket turns out, even though I am using DK yarn? Or would you advise choosing a new pattern?
Thanks in advance!
