Substitution Question

I’m working on a baby sweater and the instructions say to use two strands of DK weight yarn held together to knit the edge of the piece. I was wondering whether it would be OK to substitute one strand of worsted weight yarn for the two pieces of DK weight yarn.


Try the single strand of worsted in a gauge swatch – see if you can get gauge, and if so, do you like the knitted fabric that it produces?? It’s definitely possible but will require a bit of experimenting.
