My son is in the Oregon Guard, I’d like to make him a pair of [I]washable[/I] fingerless gloves. The pattern calls for a wool that is 70% merino, 20% nylon, 10% angora. It states that each yarn requires approx. 71 yards. What I found in a camoflauge is a Bernat 100% acrylic, approx. 195 yards.
I’m new at knitting anything but scarves, so would really appreciate any help to figure out if this would work, although it seems to met that the Bernat is twice as thick.
