View Full Version : Substituting a different yarn....??

03-25-2012, 10:14 PM
I would like to use a different brand of yarn for a baby blanket that I found online. The yarn it recommends (Alchemy Temple) is expensive and not easily available in all the colors. What should I look for in finding a replacement? The weight and yards? The fiber (wool)?
I know with a blanket it won't be critical, but want to find a good substitute.
This is my first major project---- thanks for your help!!:wink:

Hi & welcome to KH. After another post or two you should be able to post a link to the pattern and then it will be easier for people to help you out with a substitution. Enjoy!

What needle and stitch gauge does the pattern say? You want to use a yarn that will match that.
