Hi,

I'm new to knitting and to the forum - hello everyone :-)

I just bought a pattern from vogue knitting that calls for Anny Blatt Capella yarn. This is a 100% cashmere worsted weight yarn, 14 gauge. Does anyone know what I could use as a substitute without messing up the pattern?

Any help MUCH appreciated! :grphug:

Thanks,
Lou

Also - the reason I'm asking is because according to yarnindex the yarn in question hsa been discontinued... :-(

Look at yarndex to see what could substitute at the same gauge, with similar fiber content. You mean 14 sts per 4" right? That's a heavy worsted or aran weight, maybe even a bulky.
