I’m thinking of attempting to make mittens for a couple of friends for Christmas (I’m so slow I have to start way early, lol!!). I’d kind of like to try alpaca, and found some on sale at an online yarn store.
I use Amy’s mitten pattern, so (1) 220 yard skein should get me through a pair; but some of the colors I really like are in dk weight instead of worsted.
How much difference will this make in the finished mittens? Are they a fairly even substitute in something like mittens or scarves?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
