The needle size and pattern affects whether it's holey or not. The second pattern you listed is supposed to be that way because it's lacy the other is more solid.

It's kind of up to you whether you want a thicker fabric or not. Personally I'd rather use worsted instead of double stranding if I want something thicker.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
