I have a pattern from May 2009 in [I]Creative Knitting[I] which shows the pattern using a solid yarn, I have Baby Bea Sweet Delight in the twist. Does anyone know if using a "twist" instead of a solid will mess the design up? The pattern is called Angel Wings and the design looks like wings throughout the blanket I wasn't sure if using the yarn I have will distort the "wing look" and should I use a solid instead?
Thanks!:teehee:

It may show up, why don't you cast on about 20 or 30 sts in the pattern and see how it looks. The Twist is thicker than the regular Sweet delight, I know that; it's more of a worsted weight with the regular SD is a fingering or sport weight. You may need to use a larger needle on the twist.

Thanks, the pattern call for worsted weight and really, this yarn does not look like some of the twists in other brands, pale pink with a little white running through it. Will give it a shot and see how it works. Thanks for answering
