I need to substitute Classic Elite Premiere...do you think Knit Picks Shine Worsted would be a good substitute?

Classic Elite Premier is 50% Pima/ 50% Tencel and is 5 sts/inch on #6 needles.

Knit Picks Shine Worsted is 60% Pima Cotton, 40% Modal and is 4.5 - 5 sts=1" on #6-9 needles.

What about Encore Jeannee? It's 51% Cotton, 49% Acrylic and is 4.5 sts=1"/ US 8 needle.

This is for the skinny scarf shown here:http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_3520116,00.html.

Thanks in advance for the help/suggestions! :D

I am working with "shine worsted" right now and I would think it would be perfect for your scarf. :star: Ellie
