I have a shawl pattern that is calling for 550 yds of yarn. They suggest yarn that has 425 yds to 4 ounces. Gauge 24 sts and 32 rows to 4 inches
I would like to use yarn that is a little thicker. There are 250 yds to 4 ounces (500 yds on 8 oz skein)… Gauge: 20 sts to 4 inches.
I have 2 skeins (1000 yds).
Will this be enough to complete the pattern?
I know the yarn would make a slightly larger shawl - Some have been telling me that I have enough wool and others have said I don’t have enough.
Can someone please let me know for sure and why?
Thanks so much.
