I need some help figuring out whether to use 1 strand of yarn or 2 together for this blanket. The pattern itself calls for 12 oz of worsted weight yarn. However, the caption under the picture says that they used 2 strands of yarn for that blanket with a total of 22 oz.
So how do I know which instructions to follow?
I think the baby yarns are thinner, so holding 2 strands of each would equal 1 strand of worsted. You need more yardage if you hold 2 thin strands together than if you just use 1 strand of a heavier yarn. So it depends which weight you're going to use.
