standard yarn weight system questions

Hi.:grinning:I was wondering if a person could not go by the yarn weight system? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:Do you guys always go by the standard yarn weight system?did anyone here ever use a different yarn weight than the pattern? :thinking:Like i want to use a different yarn weight to make a pattern bigger for a blanket for example.

Yes there are times when i will use a different weight you just have to make sure you adjust your guage, size of needles used

Generally I follow the pattern, but with things like blankets you can usually change weights.
