Hi - I am fairly new to knitting, but thought I’d try to make a sweater.
For my size, it says I would need 9 x 100g hanks of Ushya yarn, but I want to use a different super-chunky yarn, such as Lion Brand Hometown USA. Balls of this are 74m and 142g, whereas Ushya is 105m and 100g.
Is it most important to have the right length of yarn? So if 9 balls of ushya are 9 x 105m, does that mean I need 945m length of any other wool, even if it’s much heavier?
Thanks in advance!
