How many strands held together would it take to make fingering weight equivalent to worsted weight?? I have several balls of fingering weight yarn, but what I want to make calls for worsted. Is this possible??
2 strands fingering is approx. 1 strand sport
2 strands sport is approx. 1 strand worsted
So I'd say about 4 strands.
You'd have to swatch to know for sure, but 4 strands is probably a good starting place.
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
